Collections is a new Microsoft Edge feature that lets you save web pages for future reference and share them with your friends. This article explains how to use Microsoft Edge Collections.
Table of Contents
Collections is enabled by default on Microsoft Edge. If this feature is available to you, the icon for Collections will be displayed next to the address bar.
When you click the Collections icon for the first time, you will see a message to create your first Collection.
Create Your First Collection
Click Start New Collection to create your first Collection and give it a name. For example “Edge Tips”.
Adding Pages to Collection
The easiest way to add a page to an Edge Collection is to visit the page and click “Add Current Page“.
Note: If you have multiple Collections, you will need to select a Collection first to see this option.
Manage Your Collections
Here is how our example collection looks like after adding a few pages:
From here, you can click and open all the pages that you have added to the Collection. Here are a few other things that you can do with your Edge Collections:
Sync across devices
Collections are now part of Edge’s Sync. Your Collections will now be available from all your signed-in devices. You can add a page to your Collection from a mobile phone and access it later from your laptop or desktop computer.
“Open All” into a separate window
You can open all the pages in a Collection into an Edge window. Click the three-dots menu on the top-right corner of a Collection and click “Open All” to do this.
Rename a Card in a Collection
A page added to a Collection is called a “Card”. You can edit and rename cards after adding them to Collections. To rename a card, right-click it and select Edit.
In the Edit Name box, enter the new name for the card (page) and click Save.
There are two ways to share your Collections. First is to send them to a Word or Excel file and then share that file.
The next option is to use “Copy All”. After you copy cards from a Collection, you can paste it to OneNote or an email application like Outlook to share.
