What is the Briefcase icon on Microsoft Edge?
The Briefcase icon on Microsoft Edge is a small symbol that appears on the browser’s taskbar icon. It indicates that you’re using the latest “Edge for Business” which is designed to help you keep your work-related activities separate from your personal browsing.
The Briefcase icon acts as a visual cue, letting you know that you’re in a work-focused mode while using the browser.
It’s Microsoft’s way of making sure you can efficiently manage your work tasks and maintain a clear distinction between your professional and personal online activities.
