Edge is the latest web browser from Microsoft. This is a Chromium-based browser that comes with deeper integration of Microsoft services and Chrome extensions. Edge comes pre-installed in Windows 10 but it is also available to download on other desktop platforms including Linux, and macOS. There are a lot of similarities between Chrome and Edge. So, most of the Edge keyboard shortcuts are similar to Chrome keyboard shortcuts. But there are a few keyboard shortcuts that Microsoft has changed in the Edge. If you use Microsoft Edge, you need to learn Edge keyboard shortcuts to perform different tasks faster. In this article, I am listing Edge keyboard shortcuts.
