How to Turn On or Off Page Prediction 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.

You can use page prediction in Microsoft Edge to improve reading, speed of browsing, and make your overall experience better. With page prediction, Microsoft Edge can predict where you will go next and load that page ahead of time, making navigation nearly instantaneous. The predictions are done using Microsoft's understanding of browsing patterns, user browsing habits, and common cues in Web pages, like “next” links and pagination. Bing’s extensive knowledge of the Web and data mining help make these predictions laser sharp.

When you turn on page prediction, your browsing data will be sent anonymously to Microsoft to help improve how page prediction works.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off page prediction in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.
