While typing in the address bar, Microsoft Edge shows key phrases and links from History or Bookmarks. If you want to disable address bar search suggestions in the Microsoft Edge browser, then this tutorial might be helpful for you.
Like other standard browsers, Microsoft Edge shows some suggestions based on your search query. It appears as you start typing something in the address bar. The suggestion list contains some links from the browsing history (websites that you already visited earlier), previous search results, and Favorites. It is quite handy when you need to get the result spontaneously. However, many folks seem to dislike this feature due to some reasons. Therefore, if you want to get suggestions from the history and Favorites only and turn off the search suggestions in Microsoft Edge, follow this step by step guide.
