How to Share Web Pages in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

In Windows 10, you can directly share web pages in Microsoft Edge using installed UWP (Universal Windows Platform) apps such as Mail, Twitter, OneNote, Cortana Reminders, Facebook, etc…

Starting with Windows 10 build 15002, Microsoft has redesigned the Windows sharing experience to be more app-focused and integrated with where you are sharing from. The new Windows Share experience will pop-up the new share flyout within the app you are sharing from and give you a list of applications you can share to. This list changes based on your usage.

Starting with Windows 10 build 15042, the new Share icon is now visible in Microsoft Edge.

This tutorial will show you how to directly share web pages in Microsoft Edge using UWP (Universal Windows Platform) apps from the Share flyout in Windows 10.

How to Enable or Disable SmartScreen Filter for Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

Microsoft Edge is a new web browser added in Windows 10. Microsoft Edge will be available across the Windows 10 device family. It is fast, compatible, and built for the modern Web.

SmartScreen Filter is a feature in Microsoft Edge that helps detect phishing websites. SmartScreen Filter can also help protect you from downloading or installing malware (malicious software). SmartScreen Filter helps to protect you in three ways:

•As you browse the web, it analyses webpages and determines if they have any characteristics that might be suspicious. If it finds suspicious webpages, SmartScreen will display a message giving you an opportunity to provide feedback and advising you to proceed with caution.
• SmartScreen Filter checks the sites you visit against a dynamic list of reported phishing sites and malicious software sites. If it finds a match, SmartScreen Filter will show you a warning notifying you that the site has been blocked for your safety.
• SmartScreen Filter checks files that you download from the web against a list of reported malicious software sites and programs known to be unsafe. If it finds a match, SmartScreen Filter will warn you that the download has been blocked for your safety. SmartScreen Filter also checks the files that you download against a list of files that are well known and downloaded by many Microsoft Edge users. If the file that you’re downloading isn’t on that list, SmartScreen Filter will warn you.

This tutorial will show you how to force the SmartScreen Filter in Microsoft Edge to always be on or off for all users in Windows 10.

How to Enable or Disable TCP Fast Open for Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

TCP Fast Open, TLS False Start, and TLS 1.3 can improve both performance and security in Microsoft Edge.

The first improvement comes from the TLS False Start option, which allows the client to start sending encrypted data immediately after the first TLS roundtrip. With that, we are down to 1-RTT for TLS, or 2-RTT if we count the TCP connection. We have already enabled TLS False Start in Microsoft Edge, with a set of strong cipher suites.

The next improvement comes from the TCP Fast Open procedure, defined in RFC 7413. The RFC defines a new TCP option, containing a “Fast Open Cookie.” When a “Fast Open capable” client connects to a server for the first time, it inserts an empty cookie in the initial TCP SYN message, prompting the server to send back a valid cookie in the response. For the subsequent connections, the client copies the cookie in the TCP SYN message, and then sends data immediately. If the server recognizes the data as valid, it will accept the data and pass them to the application. When TCP Fast Open is enabled, data can be sent before the connection complete, and the responses will arrive immediately. When we combine TCP Fast Open and TLS False Start, the key negotiation is performed simultaneously with the initial TCP handshake. There is just 1-RTT before the HTTP traffic starts.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable TCP Fast Open for a faster and more secure web in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.

How to Turn On or Off ‘Let sites save protected media licenses’ in Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge is a new web browser added in Windows 10, and will be available across the Windows 10 device family. It is fast, compatible, and built for the modern Web.

Some websites that stream music or videos use Digital Rights Management (DRM) to help protect against copying the streamed content. This may require saving data locally on your device.

Since you can download or otherwise obtain this type of media while using Microsoft Edge, the Let sites save protected media licenses on my device setting allows sites that offer this type of protected media to save DRM data on your device, including a unique identifier (ID) and media licenses (which make sure you have permission to access the media). This information is then retrieved by the websites you visit that host the protected content in order to allow you to use that content.

Turning off this setting prevents new media licenses from being saved on your device. Turning it back on will reset your unique ID and allow you to download and otherwise obtain protected media through Microsoft Edge.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off to Let sites save protected media licenses on my device in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.
