How to change site permissions in the new Microsoft Edge [Windows/Mac]

Are you using the new Microsoft Edge browser on your Windows 10 or Mac? Whenever you browse the internet, several websites ask for specific permissions to offer you better browsing experience. For instance, browsing Google Maps will eventually require the Location permission of your computer. Just like you allow certain permissions on your smartphones, your browser also asks for it for the websites you visit.

These types of permissions are asked when you browse the websites that require access. But in some cases, you might have either blocked or allowed some site permissions that you don’t actually want to, and changing them seems necessary for you because of privacy concerns or whatsoever. The Microsoft Edge browser allows you to change the site permissions with only a few clicks.
