Supercharge Your Productivity with These Microsoft Edge Hacks


As a busy business owner or manager, you’re always on the lookout for ways to streamline your workflow and get more done. While your web browser may seem like just a tool for accessing the internet, Microsoft Edge on Windows 11 is packed with features that can truly supercharge your productivity.

Let me share five of my favorite Microsoft Edge tricks that will have you working smarter, not harder.


Split Screen for Seamless Multitasking

Juggling multiple tasks and keeping an eye on different web pages at once is all in a day’s work for most entrepreneurs. Microsoft Edge’s split screen feature is a game-changer, allowing you to view two pages side-by-side without the hassle of flipping between tabs or windows. It’s like having two browsers open simultaneously, but without the clutter.


Vertical Tabs for Streamlined Navigation

If you’re anything like me, you probably have a million tabs open at any given time. Microsoft Edge’s vertical tab view is a total lifesaver, neatly stacking your open pages down the side of the browser. Not only does this give you a better overview of what’s open, but it also puts essential controls like close and mute right at your fingertips.


Workspaces for Effortless Collaboration

Collaboration is the name of the game in business these days. Microsoft Edge’s Workspaces feature makes it a breeze to work with your team or clients. You can create a custom workspace with all the relevant web pages, then share it via a simple link. Your collaborators can then access everything they need with just one click – perfect for brainstorming sessions, project management, or presentations.


Collections for Organized Research

Gathering information from the web is a constant task, and Microsoft Edge’s Collections feature keeps you on top of it. You can easily save text, images, and videos from web pages into custom collections, helping you stay focused and productive during your research.


Immersive Reader for Distraction-Free Reading

When you need to really dive into an article or document, distractions on the page can be a major productivity killer. Microsoft Edge’s Immersive Reader mode strips away ads, links, and other clutter, giving you a clean, distraction-free reading experience. You can even customize the text size, spacing, and color scheme to suit your preferences, or have the content read aloud for hands-free learning.

If your business isn’t already using Microsoft Edge on Windows 11, now is the perfect time to make the switch. These productivity-boosting features can help you and your team work smarter, not harder. Let me know if you have any questions or need help getting started!
