How to Change Default Behavior for Copy and Paste of URLs in Microsoft Edge Chromium

How to Create a Shortcut to Open Microsoft Edge Chromium

You can browse the web in Microsoft Edge in normal mode with different profiles, InPrivate browsing mode, and Guest mode.

InPrivate browsing is a private browsing mode in which no browsing history, download history, cookies and site data, and form fill data are remembered.

Browsing data from Guest mode such as favorites, browsing history, passwords, and form fill data does not persist after you close all Guest mode windows. Downloaded files are stored on the device, but the history of the downloads is deleted. Guest mode allows you to browse the web without being signed into other sites automatically.

You can sign in to a profile in Microsoft Edge with your Microsoft account or your work/school account.

Signing in to Microsoft Edge provides additional features to make the browser more productive for you. To sign you in seamlessly, when you first launch Microsoft Edge, it attempts to detect your identity from the operating system. If Microsoft Edge detects your identity from the operating system but you do not want to remain signed into Microsoft Edge, go to edge://settings/profiles and either sign out or remove your profile. If Microsoft Edge does not detect your identity from the operating system, you may sign into Microsoft Edge from edge://settings/profiles.

If a new identity is added to the operating system and your Microsoft Edge profile does not currently have an identity, Microsoft Edge adds the specific identity to your profile. If you sign into Microsoft Edge with a Microsoft account or a work or school account and do not have an identity on your Windows 10 profile, the specific account is added to your Windows 10 profile unless you specifically choose to not add it to Windows 10 while signing in.

When you sign in to Microsoft Edge and turn on sync, you can easily browse the web from any of your devices, keep your favorites organized, and always pick up right where you left off. Your favorites, settings, addresses (form data), passwords, history, open tabs, extensions, collections, and other browser data can sync across all devices you are signed in to a profile in Microsoft Edge with the same account.

Your signed-in profile does not begin syncing your data without your explicit permission while either launching Microsoft Edge for the first time or signing into the browser.

If you like, you can use the BrowserSignin policy to enable, disable, or force sign in to Microsoft Edge for all users on the computer.

This tutorial will show you how to enable, disable, or force sign in to the Chromium based Microsoft Edge with a Microsoft account or work/school account for all users on the computer.
