Microsoft’s anniversary edition includes an update to the Edge browser that allows the installation of extensions. Omitting them was one of the more irritating “features” of the original Windows 10 release. Pickings are incredibly slim with only 13 offered. Kind of …. maybe …. confused? So am I. In the Extensions category, there are 13 listed. However, some aren’t categorised correctly and are available instore. Microsoft’s Personal Shopping Assistant is available, but doesn’t show up under extensions, nor does a search specifically for extensions produce any results. Sigh …
How do you install them? Look up at the top right corner and click on the 3 dots:
Slide your mouse down the list and click once on Extensions -> Get Extensions from the Store. Wait a few seconds and the Microsoft Store will open to the extensions page. Or open the store app, click on Collections and scroll down to Extensions. Click on the one you want and it will install automatically.
To view, change or delete an extension, return to the Extensions menu. Right clicking on the extension will allow you to delete or change the options. Pretty straight forward, but we’ll have to sit around twiddling our thumbs waiting for the category to fill up. I’ll add extension reviews here on the App Reviews section when they start showing up.
