With the latest feature updates, you can now do a lot more with your PDF in Microsoft Edge like, customize different views, take notes, and even have your PDF read aloud to you!
How to view a PDF file
Annotations in the browser is now extended to PDFs as well. The annotations toolbar has all the tools to highlight text or use Windows Ink to write on your documents.
You can get to some of the features quickly through the pop-up menu that appears when you select any text. Once you select text, you will get an option to highlight the text quickly or add a text note.
Pro tip: Try opening a PowerPoint presentation saved as PDF in single page layout with continuous scrolling off and go full-screen. You are now in presentation mode right from your browser.
Every now and then we encounter forms to be filled which are in PDF format — and now you can fill them out within Microsoft Edge. You can even use the inking feature to sign the forms with your handwriting. So, the next time you open a PDF in Microsoft Edge, try out some of these features, and happy reading.
