How to disable Article Feed on Microsoft Edge

It’s been some time since the new Microsoft Edge browser has been launched. The good thing is that it is now based on the Chromium engine, which makes it possible to use Chrome’s extensions on the Edge browser. Apart from that, there are several other features of the new browser that people are making it their default browser.

When you open a new tab on the Microsoft Edge browser, you will see that the tab is filled with a lot of information, including news, weather, advertisements, etc. But the good thing is that you can disable it.

In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how you can easily disable the Article Feed on the new tab in Microsoft Edge.
