Microsoft Edge Just Got an Update for One of Its Best Features

Microsoft Edge has been rather impressive to say the least, and one reason for that being the case is that it has a lot of features that many users have been appreciating so far. A highly popular feature that Microsoft Edge has to offer is called Web Capture, and it allows you to take complete or partial screenshots of any and all web pages that you might be looking through.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that there was a limitation in this feature which was that you couldn’t screenshot PDFs and the like. All of that is going to change thanks to the new update, as spotted by u/Leopeva64-2, which will allow you to easily capture PDFs and add them to your collections which would be quite easy for you to sort as well to an extent.

In order to capture a screenshot using Web Capture, you would need to click on the three dot icon on the upper right hand corner of the taskbar. The only problem was that if you ever tried to click on the icon while having a PDF open it would have been grayed out and clicking on it would not result in any kind of action being performed at all with all things having been considered and taken into account.

The latest version of the browser, namely Microsoft Edge Canary, is adding this functionality because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up improving user experiences across the board. Edge has made it a lot easier for people to open and read PDFs, and the expansion of Web Capture is going to be yet another positive step in that regard. It’s one that competitor browsers may very well want to try to emulate thanks to its practicality.
