Microsoft Edge: Keyboard shortcuts for Windows 10 and macOS
One of the most loyal companions in the form of software that PC or mobile device users have come across today is web browsers. Programs like Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Edge help us navigate most effectively and safely.
These offer us a growing number of integrated functions with which they claim that we can fluidly move around the Internet. But in the browsers we are talking about, other factors come into play, such as security or the interface. Keep in mind that with these we mean one of the most used types of software in 2020, both in mobile and desktop environments.
Well, despite all the menus and shortcuts that these applications present to us, there is another way to use them more fluidly. And it is that as it happens with most of the programs that we use today, these have a series of keyboard shortcuts. Among other things, these will allow us to navigate faster and more fluidly. This is mainly because these key combinations allow us to move between the functions, tabs, pages, and contents, in a much faster way.
In fact, in this specific case, we want to focus on the new browser launched by Microsoft, the renewed Edge Chromium that wants to compete with Google Chrome. This is the substitute for the classic Edge that was included by default than Windows 10.
