    How to Snooze 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.

    Starting in Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14926, Microsoft has added an experimental “Snooze” action on a tab in Microsoft Edge which provides you with a way to set a Cortana reminder on the website you are viewing. People often keep tabs open in their browser indefinitely as a “to do” list, and do not close those tabs until the action associated with that website is complete. This feature lets you put a site into a Cortana reminder that will show up as a notification and in Action Center, allowing you to quickly open that site in Microsoft Edge when you’re ready to get back to it.

    This tutorial will show you how to Snooze a tab in Microsoft Edge to set a Cortana reminder for the website in Windows 10.

    I think I 'm going to try that out some time today and report back my findings. It could be useful I think.
