Microsoft edge: Sync browser history between phone and computer
If you log into your Microsoft E- browser (Microsoft’s proprietary browser) with your same Microsoft account, your browser history, bookmarks, and other information will be synchronized with both your browser and your mobile browser, but your browser will be synchronized. Why Use Microsoft Edge?
We recommend using Microsoft Edge for Android for two reasons:
First, if Google Chrome has problems with Android,
you can use Microsoft Edge as a good alternative to Chrome. Also, if Windows 10 is synced with your phone, you can use it as a tool to back up your browser information.
The second reason is Microsoft’s ability to facilitate communication between the phone and the computer. If you open a page in the Android browser, you can easily move that page to Windows 10 and open it on your computer. To do this, first touch the icon in the middle of the web page (this icon is almost at the bottom of the page) Touch the Android browser to display the list of Windows 10 computers. Once you have selected your computer, the Ajax browser will run automatically on the selected computer and load the web page you want.
