Notably, the window 10 October 2020 updates brought some new tricks for the browser, start menu, and more.
1_MICROSOFT EDGE BROWSER BRINGS NEW IMPROVEMENTS.
The Microsoft new edge browser includes a privacy feature that tries to block sites that track you online, this is synonymous with Mozilla’s Firefox browser.
There’s a feature called collections, it lets you more easily gather information from different websites as you are doing research.
HOW TO USE
Use the new edge browser in largely the same way you would use any other browser.
Navigate to the logo on your Taskbar or from the Start menu, it will appear as a circular crashing wave tinting blue, green, and aqua similar to the one blue internet explorer.

To set up your privacy features,
go to Settings > Privacy and services. You’ll see three options for tracking prevention: basic (allows most trackers), balanced (blocks trackers from sites you haven’t visited Microsoft recommends this one), and Strict (blocks a majority of trackers from all sites).
Click on the icon to the left of the search bar to change or check your privacy, afterwards, s box will appear letting you know if your connection is secure with options to check the site certificate.
You can also toggle on or off Tracking Prevention, and manage the setting for all sites you visit. If it’s set to on, you’ll see the number of trackers that the browser has blocked.
Navigate to a page you’d like to save, click and the icon that looks like a “+” in a box to the right of the search bar. This is how to use the edge control browser.
2_CUSTOMIZE YOUR NEW START MENU.
The window Start menu gets a refresh in October 2020 update. The new version features a more streamlined design and replaces the solid color backplates behind the logos in your apps list with partially transparent backgrounds, so the icons stand out more. These colors will change depending on if you are running light or dark mode.
HOW TO CUSTOMIZE THE START MENU
If you want to add an accent color so your tiles match your desktop theme, all you need to do is go to settings personalization, color and enable the accent color on Start, taskbar, and action center.
3_OPEN ALL YOUR TAPS AT ONCE.
With the update, you’ll be able to open all of your tabs in Edge with a simple command, instead of just the active one in each browser window.
This makes it easier to get a full view of every window you have open, instead of just one. You’ll also be able to configure it to show only your last three or five tabs or turn it off completely.
However, it only works with the Edge browser, at least for now.
HOW TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR TABS.
To open all tabs in Edge at once, press Alt + Tab. To configure your tab settings or turn off the feature, go to Settings > System > Multitasking. You’ll see a drop-down menu with options for what Alt + Tab can do.
These three new features are superb! Very easier and what people would go for, easier to understand, and do the actual work on the system.
