View a Web Page in Microsoft Edge: Overview

            To view a web page in Microsoft Edge when you know the URL for the page, type the URL of the web page into the address bar and then press the “Enter” key on your keyboard. If you don’t have a keyboard, you can select the website or search result you want to view from the drop-down of results shown when you start to type into the address bar.

            However, you may also need to search the web for web pages that contain content for which you are searching. To do this in Microsoft Edge, type the words or phrases for which you want to find matching web pages directly into the address bar and then press the “Enter” key on your keyboard. If you don’t have a keyboard, you can select the search result term you want to view from the drop-down of results shown when you start to type into the address bar.

            At that point, you will see a search results web page that shows hyperlinks of web pages that contain content related to the terms for which you searched. You can click these hyperlinks to view the associated web pages. As you move from page to page, you can use the “Back” and “Forward” buttons in the upper left corner of the window to move back to the results of the web search. To refresh the content of the currently displayed web page, click the “Refresh” button in the upper-left corner of the window.

            To view a web page in Microsoft Edge on a separate tab, click the “New tab” button, which looks like a plus sign, shown to the right of the current tab names shown in the Title Bar. To switch between the tabs when you have multiple web pages opened in different tabs, click the tab names of the pages shown in the Title Bar. You can close an open web page tab by clicking the small “x” button at the right end of any tab shown.

            You can close the entire Microsoft Edge window by clicking the “Close” button in the far upper-right corner of the window. If you have multiple tabs opened in the window, a message box will appear and show the question “Do you want to close all tabs?” You can click the “Close all” button in this message box to close all tabs within the window. You can click the “Cancel” button in the message box to cancel and not close any tabs. If you would like to always close all opened tabs when you close a window without being prompted by the message box, you can check the “Always close all tabs” checkbox before clicking the “Close all” button within the message box.
