What you need to know

  • Edge allows you to customize it with themes.
  • In honor of Women's History Month, Microsoft has three special themes for Edge.
  • The company also offers an explanation for what the themes are meant to artistically represent.

In the event you want your browser to help you celebrate Women's History Month, Edge offers three distinct themes for that express purpose. You can download them right now for free.

The add-ons come from Microsoft, which has a section of its website dedicated to honoring the occasion. Furthermore, on the Edge add-ons' pages for each of the three themes, there's a description of what the theme imagery is meant to illustrate. From Microsoft:

Celebrate Women's History Month and International Women's Day with themes inspired by the dynamic and intersectional communities at Microsoft. These themes represent the strength and the force of those who identify as women and challenge conventional paths and notions of success, leadership, influence, and power. These themes change the look and feel of your browser as well as the new tab page to create an immersive visual experience, and they are exclusively available in Microsoft Edge.

Though the design is roughly the same across all three themes, the color options differ. There are blue, green, and purple variants to suit your particular aesthetic preferences. You can check out each version via the hyperlinks in the previous sentence.

These themes are nondescript enough in their artistry that even if you just want them for their subdued color palettes and aren't actively celebrating anything, they fit the bill. The same goes for a bunch of other Microsoft Edge themes. There are ones for events and celebrations as well as themes for other facets of culture, such as Halo Infinite.
