How to share content in Edge for Windows 10

How do I share web pages using the Edge browser in Windows 10?

Edge for Windows 10 is your portal to the internet. And you probably often find interesting content you'd like to share with friends and coworkers, or save to your own storage apps. Doing so is easy in Edge, thanks to the Share button in its taskbar. Here is our guide to sharing content in Edge.

How to share a link in Edge

Edge for Windows 10 has a number of sharing options based on the apps you have installed on your PC. Here's how to share a link using Edge.

  1. Launch Edge from your Start menu, desktop or taskbar.
  2. Navigate to the web page you'd like to share.

    Launch Edge. Navigate to a webpage.

  3. Click the Share button located near the top-right corner of the window.
  4. Click an app through which you'd like to share the web page's link. (In this case we're using Twitter.)

    Click the Share button. Click an app.

  5. Log in to the app if you aren't already logged in.
  6. Click Tweet or the applicable share button in the app you're using.

    Log in to the app. Click Tweet or share.

The last two steps might change a bit depending on your app of choice, but the premise remains the same, and you'll send out a link to the web page you're currently viewing.

If you don't want to share the link to an entire web page, you can also just share a screenshot of your Edge window.

    Click Screenshot. Click an app.

  7. Log in to the app if you aren't already logged in.
  8. Click the Share or Add button depending on the app you're using.

    Log in to the app. Click Share or Add.

A screenshot of whatever you're seeing in the Edge window will now be shared using the app you chose.

How to pin apps to the top of the Share menu

If you often use the same app to share content through Edge, you can pin it to the top of the Share menu.

  1. Launch Edge from your Start menu, desktop or taskbar.
  2. Click the Share button located near the top-right corner of the window.

    Click an app. Click Get.

The app will now show up in the Edge Share menu as long as it is compatible with the sharing function.
