Web Notes aren’t available in Edge browser on Windows 10

If you frequently use Web Notes in Edge on Windows 10 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

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.

3] If you are unable to use it on any web page, and if you feel that your Edge has been corrupted, create a system restore point first and then reset Edge manually.

4] Another suggestion you could try is to run System File Checker or DISM to repair the Windows system image.

Hope something helps!
