Learn how to download webpage for offline access in Microsoft Edge for Android. The webpages that are downloaded will be able to access without any internet.

When we are on road or air travel with limited or no internet access, then it’s a good option to keep an offline copy of a webpage. The offline copy of the webpage can be accessed without any internet connection and with all attachments. However, we may not be able to navigate or open links that are not available offline.

I personally keep a copy of blog pages for further reading when I am traveling without the internet. If I want to access the live page, then performing hard refresh in edge android will connect the online version of the webpage.

You can also keep a copy of the page that you frequently visit for reference. This will help in saving the network bandwidth as well. For example, a Wiki page of the destination or historical place you’re visiting along with family.
