Shortcuts Microsoft Edge Browser for Windows

Microsoft Edge was released as an improved analogue of Internet Exploler. In Windows10, the program is used by default. The browser has not received such popularity as others, however, is used by users. For convenience, the Edge provides hotkeys. Combinations are set by default, but in the settings window you can change them to your liking. Hot keys make it possible to optimize the work in the browser and work faster and easier. Remember all the combinations is not necessary. It is enough to remember the shortcuts in Microsoft Edge, which are responsible for frequently used tasks.
