How to install Microsoft Edge extensions


One of the new features of Windows 10's Anniversary Update is support for Microsoft Edge extensions.

Originally released in the Windows 10 Insider Build 14291, extension support is now available to all users who have updated the operating system to the Anniversary Update version.

Microsoft Edge extensions are similar in functionality to extensions for Google Chrome. The company stated earlier that it is easy to port Chrome extension to Microsoft Edge. The first batch of extensions are mostly Chrome ports of existing extensions.

The following guide walks you through the steps of discovering extensions for Microsoft Edge, installing them, using them, and managing them.

Thanks for all the informative links on the AU, Bb. I think I appreciate all the pros and cons.

As it happens, I have yet to receive it, which I don't mind. My question is, Is there any way to delay its installation until all the bugs are ironed out? (I've already seen how some avast users encountered a BSOD, due to an incompatibility with another 3rd party program). IIRC, there is a way to delay it, at least for a while.

I updated one laptop today. The download/installation took 45 minutes. I spent the next 3 hours troubleshooting my printer and old software that I eventually had to uninstall and reinstall. The update also disabled my System Restore and changed a few things in the Windows Firewall, so I had to reconfigure all that.

Thanks, that link was the one I recalled.

As I muddled through it, I realized it applied to Windows 10 Pro edition - whereas I have the Home edition. Which resulted in the AU being downloaded and installed -  almost. I still have to restart to complete the installation, and was able to delay this restart by rescheduling it for August 11 at 11:59 PM, which seems to be the most I can delay it. Which gives me 5 days of grace to research conflicts, assuming nothing I do in the interim causes a restart.

Fun and games!  :l

You have the Home edition?  :i  I'm surprised. I usually recommend Pro because the additional settings give the user more control.
