How to Write Notes on a Web Page Using Microsoft Edge
Edge allows you to add your own notes to a web page, and the process is actually quite simple:
First, any time you wish to do so, click the “Make a Web Note” button on the top right bar of your Edge browser.
Next, when the drawing toolbar with the purple background shows up, you can begin to mark up the page.
There’s a pen, a highlighter, an eraser, a typed note, and a clipper tool. You can choose from different colors and brush sizes.
Use the Pen to write with your touchscreen or mouse, Highlight to point out specific text, Type to write a text note, or Clip to point out a certain area.
Saving the web page: When you are ready with the page, you can Save the note, so you can return to it at any time. There are three options: 1) You can save it to your OneNote account, Microsoft Office’s default note-taking app; 2) You can save to your Favorites; or 3) You can save it to your or your Reading List folder.
Sharing the marked up web page: By clicking on the Sharing icon, you can also send the note in email, or share it on different social media sites.
There you have it! Microsoft Edge is the only browser that lets you take notes, write, doodle, and highlight directly on webpages. Then you can save and share your handiwork in all the usual ways. Make notes on important articles, send your colleague highlighted sections of an entire page—whatever you'd like to do—the web is your canvas.
