Edge Chromium Setting URLs

by Eric Wyatt
(last updated May 10, 2021)

When Microsoft updated its browser to run on Chromium open source, thus becoming Edge Chromium, it brought many changes to how the program works. One of the most significant changes is how you access the settings for the browser. Following other Chromium-based web browsers, Edge Chromium's settings are accessed within the browser window itself, with no drop-down windows or dialog boxes that have to open first. By handling the settings within the web browser itself, you can type in a URL to instantly go to the settings section you want. Below is a list of all the settings that have shortcut URLs along with the URL. Simply enter the shortcut URL in the address bar and press Enter.
