Microsoft Outlook Extension for Edge Browser

31 juillet 2021 à 02:26
Par : Kent Chen

Checking, reading, and sending emails, or even checking your calendars right on the Edge’s toolbar without opening Outlook could be convenient for many of us. With the Microsoft Outlook browser extension, now you can.

It’s still currently in the Preview stage but if you want to check it out, head out to its Extension page and install the Extension on your Edge browser.

You will see a little Outlook icon showing up on your toolbar after the installation. Click it and sign in from there.

The sign-in process follows the standard Microsoft Account sign-in process. You will need to pass 2FA as well if it’s enabled in your account. It supports both Microsoft Account and Office 365 accounts

Once login, a mini version of Outlook web will be showing up in the same pullout window.

Within the little popout window, you can do all normal Outlook tasks as you do on your Outlook web. You can switch to Calendar, Contacts, and Todos from the bottom of the window too. The experience will pretty much be the same.

To sign out, click the hamburger icon and the Signout link.

Overall, it works quite smoothly. It’s an extension that is worth keeping in my Edge browser.

Currently, it’s only available for Edge but the Chrome version is on its way as well.

Secret Math Solver in Microsoft Edge Helps You Learn Math Solutions

In terms of solving math, we’ve got calculators, online calculators, or search engines like Google or Bing. But none of them is cool and easy to solve a bit complicated math problems, such as one of those quadratic equations.

If you are not aware, Microsoft Edge has an secret math solver embedded in the browser. And here is how to enable it and use it.

Since it’s a released feature, we need to enable it first. Go to edge://flags page, type math in the search box, and enable it.

Once Edge is restarted, head over to the Settings page, Appearance section and switch the Math solver on.

You will see the Match Solver icon showing up on the toolbar. Clicking it brings up the Math Solver panel inside the Edge browser.

Now you have the choice of either select the equation on the web page or type out the math problem.

Click Solve, and here you go.

You can select on the method that solve the problem and show the detailed steps. And scroll down a bit more, you will see the graph of equation and share the solution to someone if you like.

Great for student studying their math, I’d say.

Tab Sleeping Feature Available now in Microsoft Edge

6 mai 2021 à 08:19
Par : Kent Chen

Tab sleeping or Tab snoozing feature has been around on other modern browsers for a while. Some are using extensions and some have the feature built-in. Now Microsoft Edge has joined the group with a tab sleeping feature right out of the box.

As you can see, the sleeping tab is there to save resources and to improve the performance of web browsing. And because it reduces the amount of memory used for the browser, it also improves overall system performance.

Since Microsoft Edge version 90, the tab sleeping feature is enabled by default to put inactive tabs to sleep after 2 hours of inactivity.

However, if you are not fond of the feature or just want to tweak the setting a bit, you can still do it through Settings.

Go to System pages in settings via edge://settings/system.

Under the Save resources section, you can disable the Tab Sleeping feature by sliding the switch off.

Or, change the time of inactivity to anything that works for you.

Or, add websites that you want them to be live at all time.

I would say, give Tab Sleeping a try first before turning it off. If you are the one who always leaves tons of tabs open, you may get a lot of memory back with this feature.

Setting Up Google as Default Search Engine for Microsoft Edge via Group Policy

30 avril 2021 à 08:32

The new Edge is great but since it’s from Microsoft, Bing is the default search engine out of the box. To change it, you can simply go to the Settings page, Privacy, search, and services, and click the Address bar and search at the bottom of the page. From there, you can manage search engines, add or set one as default, etc.

This will be fine if you are setting it for yourself. If you have many computers to manage through Active Directory, setting it up via Group Policy make things a lot easier.

Open Group Policy Manager, heading over to the following:

User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Edge

Double click the Manage Search Engines setting on the right.

And type the following in the box:

[{"allow_search_engine_discovery":true},{"is_default":true,"search_url":"https://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms}","name":"Google","keyword":"google.com"}]

Click OK to save the setting.

Microsoft Edge has a beautiful new tab page that has a search box defaulting to Bing. So to make things a bit more consistently, I’d recommend to enable and set the “Configure the new tab page search box experience” policy to Address bar. What it does is that when you type the search term in the search box in the new tab page, it will redirect you to the address bar, which uses the browser’s default search engine.

The policy is located at:

User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Edge > Default search provider

I believe that should be it.
