How to Export EPUB Book Data in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

Starting with Windows 10 Creators Update, you are able to open and read EPUB books in Microsoft Edge along with the following features:
  • Add bookmarks
  • Read aloud
  • Change text size
  • Change text spacing
  • Change font style
  • Change page theme

Starting with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you are able to annotate EPUB books in Microsoft Edge to:
  • Highlight text
  • Underline text
  • Add notes
