This post will show you how to add or remove apps on Sidebar in Microsoft Edge. The Sidebar is a panel on the right side of the Edge browser that lets you quickly access many tools while you continue browsing the internet. It also lets you access productivity apps to multitask while staying in your workflow. By default, you can access Search, Tools, Games, Microsoft 365, and Outlook apps. But if you want to customize the Edge Sidebar and have fewer or more apps in the panel, you can follow the methods suggested in this post.
