How To Create And Share Notes In Edge In Windows 10

Windows 10 is shipping with a new browser dubbed Edge and it comes with features that you don’t get in Internet Explorer (like stability and improved speed). A noteworthy feature of Edge is the ability to take notes on a web page, save it, and even share it. The browser comes with a nice clipping tool, the ability to highlight areas on a page, and even leave comments. Here’s how it works.

Open a web page and click the ‘Make a Web Note’ button.

 

You will enter the Note compose mode with all tools shown just below the title bar. The tools on the far left let you pan the page, annotate the page, highlight it, erase an annotation or highlight, leave a comment, and clip a part of the page. The tools on the far right let you save the web page complete with your note, share the note, and exit the Note compose mode.

The comments are all numbered and so long as the comment tool is active, you can reposition the comment.

You can change the color and the weight of the highlight and annotate tools by clicking and holding the respective tool and choosing a color and weight from the menu.
