Alongside the long list of enhancements and features, starting with the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809), Microsoft Edge now allows you to add or remove action buttons that appear next to the address bar.
This means that you no longer have to put up with the "Add notes" button if you don't use Windows Ink on your device, and you can now add shortcuts for faster access to other features, including history, downloads, and others.
How to manage the address bar buttons on Microsoft Edge
To customize the buttons that appear next to the address bar, use these steps:
- Open Microsoft Edge.
- Click the Settings and more menu button on the top-right corner.
- Select the Show in toolbar sub-menu.
Click the action button that you want to add or remove from the toolbar.
Once you've completed the steps, you may need to repeat the steps to manage additional action buttons in the toolbar.
If you're looking to remove a button for an extension from the toolbar. Right-click the button, and select the Show next to address bar option.
