How to Manually Update the New Microsoft Edge

Microsoft’s new browser, Edge, was launched together with Windows 10 to replace Internet Explorer. Edge is a new browser made from scratch using the Chromium code, which is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. This makes it miles ahead of its predecessor, Internet Explorer. However, it can still be behind its competitors, Chrome, and Firefox. Due to this, Microsoft has promised more boosts to the browser within the next few months. Thus, it is important to know how to manually update the New Microsoft Edge so that you do not miss out on new functions added.

  • You will see a button in the middle of your screen to download Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. To change the file to download on your operating system, click on the down arrow on the right side of the button.
  • From the drop-down list that appears, choose the operating software of the device that you are currently running to download the correct installation file.
  • When a new window pops-up, you will need to accept the privacy statement and terms and conditions. You can do so by clicking on the Accept and download button at the bottom of the statement.
  • The installation file will be downloaded on your device. Run the installer to install it on your device. When the welcome page appears, you may choose to import data from other browsers you use, or to start from a clean slate.

Checking and Installing Microsoft Edge updates

For Windows PC users:

  • Launch Microsoft Edge on your PC device. If you are currently operating the browser, it is best to save and close other files because you will need to relaunch the browser later on.
  • Once the browser is loaded, click on the Options button on the top right corner of your window. It should be represented by an icon with three dots.
  • From the drop-down menu that appears, hover your cursor over the option: Help and Feedback. There is a question mark (?) icon beside the name of the option.
  • Without moving your cursor past any other options, slide the cursor over the drop-down list that will appear next to Help and Feedback.
  • Click on About Microsoft Edge. You will be brought to a new page that will automatically check and download updates.

For Mac users:

  • Launch Microsoft Edge on your Mac and look for the menu bar at the top of your screen.
  • Click on Help.
  • When a drop-down list appears, select Update Microsoft Edge.
  • This will bring you to a page within your settings that will check for updates. If there are no updates available, the statement ‘Microsoft Edge is up to date’ will appear. Otherwise, you would be able to download updates from this page.

For mobile users:

  • Using Google Play Store (Android) or AppStore (iOS), look for Microsoft Edge.
  • Next to the app icon, there will be a button with the word: Update.
  • Click on the Update button to install the app update. The update will be downloaded and installed on your mobile device.
