Microsoft Edge Draw

Microsoft Edge is the default browser on Windows 10, and it comes with quite a few tricks up its sleeve.

If not, you can use your mouse or trackpad just as easily. If your handwriting is as illegible as mine, you also have the option to type in notes.

This is better than just a marked-up screenshot. When you save or share your annotated pages through Edge, you can scroll down and see the whole webpage, not just the part that was visible when you saved it.

Windows 10: Change the Theme Accent Color

windows-10-logo

By default, Windows 10 extracts colors from your desktop’s background and uses the main extracted color for text, icons, app tiles, and many other elements in the system.
