Microsoft has added lots of features from Classic Edge to its new Chromium-based Edge browser. One out of them is the Share feature. In this post, learn how to use it.
Microsoft recently released the stable version of its Chromium-based Edge browser and it is available for download for people all across the globe. To get started, the company has added lots of handy features to the browser and one out of them is Share feature. Another feature which the company has picked from its Classic browser.
Share feature makes it easier for the users to share a web page opened in the Edge browser to another app quickly and easily. The option is available in the browser Settings and more menu.
What actually happens is when you click the Share option, a quick dialog box will open, giving you various options to share the web page. You can:
- Copy the web page URL to share it
- Save as Cortana Reminder

- Attach it to a mail
- Send it to the Android phone linked to your device via a Phone app.
- Share it on various social networking platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Skype, and other apps.

2. Click on (…) Settings and more icon. From the menu, select the Share option.
