Microsoft Edge Web Capture tool gets “Draw with touch” feature

Microsoft recently added a Web Capture tool to Edge browser using which users can take a screenshot of a selected area or full screenshot of a web page, annotate the screenshot and share it with their friends.

With Microsoft Edge Canary v89.0.752.0, the company has added a tiny yet useful feature called “Draw with touch” to the Edge Web Capture tool. The new option is handy for users who own a touch-based device and prefer to ink with a pen and scroll with touch.
