Add a Home button to Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10

Microsoft Edge web browser in Windows 10 now lets you add a Home button to it. While some of you may not find any use for the Home button, there are others who like to have a Home button, visible on the browser interface. When you click on this Home button, it will open the page you set it to open – maybe even your  favorite website.

Add Home button to Edge

Edge browsers lets you show the Home button should you wish to. The procedure is quite simple. To show the Home button, open Edge, click open the 3-dotted More actions menu and select Settings.


Scroll down and click on View Advanced Settings. At the top itself, you will see the following Show the home button setting.


Toggle the slider to On to show the home button. If you wish you can set you home page to about:start to show the Start page, about:blank to show a blank page, about:search or your favorite website, if that is the first one you like to open.

Once you have made the changes, press on the Save button.

The home button will appear on the address bar.

To remove the Home button, simply move the button to Off position.

While this is an addition of one small feature, we hope Microsoft will continue adding more – especially context menu items like Search with, Paste & Search and so on.
