How to install Microsoft Edge

1. Head to Microsoft's Edge webpage and select Windows. 
This browser is available for Windows 10, 8.1, 8 and 7, even though Microsoft has officially ended support for Windows 7.

2. Tap Download, tap Accept and download on the next screen and then tap Close.

3. If it doesn't automatically launch, open the installation file in the Downloads folder and then tap through the installer screens to install Edge. 

4. Once installed, Edge will automatically start up. If you already have the Chrome browser installed, Edge will ask if you want to import your bookmarks, autofill data and history from Google's browser or start from scratch. If you decide to start from scratch, you can import your browser data later.
