Microsoft Edge version 107.0.1418.24 is now available to download for Windows, macOS, and Linux users in the Stable channel, and it comes with an improved and updated sidebar. The sidebar is a new addition that lets you access productivity tools in the browser, including the ability to pin a specific page and view two websites in one Edge window. In addition to improved sidebar functionality, the new update also fixes bugs and adds a number of new features.
One of the biggest improvements in this latest version of the browser is the policy to give more flexibility in Microsoft Edge startup. The Restore On Startup User URLs Enabled policy lets users add and remove their own URLs to open when starting Microsoft Edge while maintaining the mandatory list of sites specified by the admin.
