Extensions or Add-ons are designed to give additional functionality to the browser. For e.g., installing an add-on or extension for Flash player allow the webpage to display flash games and videos.

Major browsers such as Chrome and Firefox have their web stores where you can browse for essential extensions and add-ons.

In Internet explorer, add-ons were installed as part of software or offered as download when you visit certain websites. There were no dedicated stores where you can browse and install the add-ons. But that is changing with Microsoft Edge.

One of the feature added by installing Windows 10 Anniversary Update is the ability to add extensions to Microsoft Edge. You can actually go to a store and install the extensions that your need for the browser. At the time of writing, there are not much extensions listed for Microsoft Edge. Hopefully, more extensions will be added with the increasing popularity.

Add extensions to Microsoft Edge

  1. Open Microsoft Edge
  2. Click 3 dots on the right side of screen
  3. Click Extensions
  4. Select the needed extension from the store
  5. Open the extension, click Get
  6. Once the extension is installed, click Launch

Once the extension is installed, it will be listed on the top when you click the 3 dots.
