    How to Turn On or Off Reading View in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

    information   Information
    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.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off reading view and change the reading view style and font size in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.

    Note   Note
    If the Reading view Name:  Reading_view.png
Views: 18841
Size:  198 Bytes icon is grayed out, then that webpage does not support turning on reading view for it.

    If the Reading view icon is black, then reading view is currently turned off.

    If the Reading view icon is blue, then reading view is currently turned on.

    This must be one of Microsofts best browser additions, for the user and website owners. The ads, will be loaded and shown, in normal view, bringing in the needed income, and if the user finds the adds distracting when reading, they can switch to reading view, and just see the content they are interested in. Both are happy and served in the end. For the security conscious about compromised sites and zero-day exploits just install Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit.
