The Microsoft account allows you to synchronize a lot of information to work in the best conditions, regardless of the machines you use. Today we explain how to connect your account to the Edge browser on Windows.

The Microsoft account is now the link between the different versions of the Edge browser. It therefore makes it possible to synchronize numerous browsing data such as the history, the various tabs opened on the connected machines or even identity or payment information.

If you are the only user on your office machines or at home, the Microsoft account is a very practical solution for finding your work environment and your various settings, regardless of the device you use. You can find the tabs open to your work on your personal PC or find all your passwords, available in a secure way.

Let's look at how to properly configure Edge by connecting your account to the browser!
