Customize Home Page URL and Layout on Edge browser

Microsoft Edge has improvised and added a homepage layout that isn’t available on other Chromium browsers like Google Chrome, Opera, etc.

Yesterday, my sister paid a visit to my house during the festival. I was browsing a few sites while she was reading when she glanced at my homepage layout. She was stunned to see such a customized homepage layout and wanted the same for herself. I decided to help her!

Its highly customizable homepage allows you to choose from different layout options. Using the Custom Layout option, you can choose from three preset page layouts or customize them according to your needs.

Here are the 3+1 Page Layout options available in Edge for Android:

  • Focused — Hide the background image and news suggestion articles.
  • Inspirational — Display background images with news suggestions.
  • CustomEnable or disable modules on the home screen per needs.

However, Microsoft Edge has done a great job with these options that let you change the Microsoft Edge layout.

This will help you customize the edge layout based on your needs. You can enable or disable the toggle button to personalize the homepage experience of your Microsoft Edge browser on Android.

Bottom Line

Choose the Focused option if you need your Edge Android home screen clean without any news articles. If you want to add a background image, choose the Inspirational option.

Nevertheless, choose the Informational option from the layouts if you want all the features and news articles. Finally, the Custom option helps enable and disable the individual home screen elements.

I’m minimalistic, so I try to keep things plain and simple. Hence, I’ve disabled everything on my Edge browser. I have added some shortcuts of my own for my convenience. Nevertheless, my sister, who is an experimental person, was able to customize her homepage layout as per her needs.
