    How to Add or Remove Quick Links on New Tab Page in Microsoft Edge Chromium


    Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

    The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

    By default, when you open a new tab (Ctrl+T) in Microsoft Edge, you see a Bing search bar, Bing image of the day as the background, quick links as tiles of your most visited sites, and Bing news content visible to scroll.

    Microsoft Edge will automatically add quick links of websites you visit to the New Tab page. You can remove, rename, or add new quick links as wanted.

    Starting with Microsoft Edge 86.0.580.0, you will see suggestions when adding a quick link to the New Tab page, and show site updates when hovering over the quick link tile.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove quick link tiles for sites on the New Tab page in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.

    For some reason the "Quick Links" on Edge have suddenly become smaller icons. When I first saw this, I got excited...thinking that Edge was going to become more like Firefox, and allow us to add multiple rows of Quick Links. (8 isn't enough!).

    But unfortunately, it was just a change for changes-sake, it appears. No way to add more rows.
