If you frequently use Web Notes in Edge to take notes while browsing with Microsoft Edge, then you know how useful it can be. But maybe you have received this message at some time:
Web Notes aren’t available. Sorry, you can’t take notes on this page right now
If you have, then this post will show you how to troubleshoot the issue.
Web Notes aren’t available in Edge
1] If you have seen this message when you tried to annotate a PDF saved locally or on a website, then know that Microsoft Edge doesn’t support PDF Annotation – it is meant for web pages only. Edge may open PDF files but it does not support Web Notes on PDF files. You should use Microsoft Reader app or install a 3rd party PDF reader freeware.
2] The Web Notes and Sharing feature will not work on all sites – especially ones which coded on an older platform. So you need to check that too. Check if it works on this site – it should. And if it does not work on some particular site, maybe that website does not support this feature.
Hope something helps!
