Microsoft has been "sparing no effort" in promoting the Edge, even making a number of users a little difficult to understand the operation.

Now, Microsoft is taking the Edge promotion to a new level.

Recently, according to Neowin, a user discovered thatWhen Edge is opened, a full-screen page appears that even takes up the browser's title bar, preventing users from closing in the usual way.


If you click "Start" as instructed on the full-screen page, a second page will appear,On this page, Microsoft will ask users to set Edge as their default browser.


Fortunately, this modification is not mandatory,Instead of being forced to accept the advice, users can uncheck "Use Microsoft's recommended browser Settings."

From what we've heard so far, the full-screen AD appears right after the Edge update, which suggests that Microsoft is likely to gradually try to incorporate a more "effective" way to promote the browser beyond the promotional page.

It's worth noting that while Microsoft has come up with a lot of ideas to promote Edge,But in February, the Edge lost market share, not up, according to data research firm statcounter.
