How to Turn On or Off Line Focus in Microsoft Edge Reading View 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.

Microsoft Edge provides a reading view for a more streamlined clean and simple layout, book-like reading experience of webpages, without the distraction of unrelated or other secondary content on the page. This will bring whatever you're reading front-and-center. You can even change the reading view style and font size to suit your mood.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17711, Microsoft Edge has a new Line focus feature that helps improve focus while reading an article by highlighting sets of one, three, or five lines.
