After several months or years of using Microsoft Edge, the software can be a bit loaded with too many extensions or too many favorites. This is when a major cleaning is needed.

The Edge browser is full of options to improve and streamline its navigation. We think in particular of favorites, which allow you to save all the pages you visit each day, and to classify your ideas and the sites you visit regularly. We also think of extensions, additional software that allows you to find your passwords from a manager or to access additional services.

All these settings are very useful, but the more time passes, the more the software becomes clogged with new software installed or favorites that you can no longer manage. Maybe you weren't even aware that you had this whole collection of pages dating back several years. In short, to know how to properly configure Edge, it is important to learn how to clean it properly.
