All Microsoft Edge Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows and Mac

When it comes to applications, most people are extremely loyal to the app that they have been using for a long time. Browser apps are no exception to this. Most users look for a browser that makes their user experience convenient. Microsoft Edge makes it pretty simple for the users with its easy to use interface. It also has shortcut commands that will speed up the work of the user. In this guide, I have put up all the Microsoft Edge keyboard shortcuts for PC.

I know a lot of new Windows OS users may have the MS Edge on your PC but they may not be using it much. However, once I mention the cool shortcuts, I’m sure they will give it a try. I have many friends that use the Edge browser on their macs. So, I have also included the keyboard shortcuts available for macOS. Regardless of the operating system, most people like to use keyboard shortcuts to execute any task. Instead of hovering a mouse and clicking, getting the task done right from the keyboard in a split second is much better.
