- Canary channel users can turn the feature on via Edge's experimental flags now.
Microsoft Edge testers in the Canary channel can now get their hands on Microsoft's new "Collections" feature. Available as an experimental flag in Edge, the feature allows you to easily round up information and images in lists, whether you're shopping, planning a trip, or putting together a wish list.
To start using the feature, you'll have to update to the latest Canary channel build and enter edge://flags#edge-collections in the address bar. From there, you can switch the the dropdown box to "Enabled" and restart the browser to turn it on.
Once you decide to make a collection, you can give it a name and then start adding to it. You'll be able to quickly add full webpages, drag and drop elements like images into the collection, or highlight specific content and add it from the right-click context menu. All of your content in a collection will be laid out with visual cards to make navigating easier.
Once you've got a collection going, you can add notes to it, remove content, or rearrange it. You can also export collections directly to Excel or copy and paste content as needed with your clipboard.
If you're on the Canary channel, you can give Collections a shot now by downloadingthe latest update. If you have yet to try the new Chromium-based Edge, you can download the Beta, Dev, and Canary channels now from the Edge Insider site now.
This seems really neat. Like Set Tabs Aside but times ten.
Such a great idea. I'm gonna use it.
I don't understand how this is play to Set Tabs Aside of original edge browser. Does it preserve my entire tab session for all tabs?
I have over 400 collections set up. I have no way to organize them. Microsoft needs to add a category the group collections.
