Microsoft Edge has gained a new shortcut to share the content found on the Internet with Outlook contacts, which is the account used to access the operating system itself. The feature arrived with the "April Update" update from Windows 10 to the browser. By default, the link sent by the Mail app. However, it is also possible to quickly access other chat programs like Facebook Messenger.
When you use the feature for the first time, there is no contact on the shortcut screen, but whenever a person is selected to receive a link, they will be highlighted in the Share tab, for quicker access. Follow the steps below to learn how to share a website with friends in a simple way using Microsoft Edge.
