How to Start Microsoft Edge Open with Specific Webpages

 

As we all know, the Microsoft Edge is the latest browser from Microsoft that is built-in in Windows 10. It comes with a lot of features that are user-friendly. One of them is a startup webpage. Edge gives the control to the user to decide what webpages are to be opened on the startup when the browser is opened. This means that we do not have to type any address in the address bar. For example, let us say, you need to open 4 URL links when you start Edge, you simply specify these URL links once in the settings. The next time, when you open the Edge browser, you will see these 4 URLs opened in the 4 different tabs, without having to type a thing. Isn’t this really cool?
