Did you know you can write directly on webpages in Microsoft Edge and easily save or share what you’ve marked up with friends and colleagues? Microsoft Edge is the only browser with the built-in functionality that lets you take notes, write, doodle and highlight directly on webpages.

Markup webpages in Microsoft Edge

To start marking up a webpage, launch Microsoft Edge and click the pen icon. When you hover over it, you’ll see it says, “Make a Web Note.” Choose either Pen, Highlight or Type, and start writing.

Have a great week!
