You've seen how to delete all saved cookies in one fell swoop. You may notice that this process is sometimes quicker on your second or third visit to a page, an improvement made possible in part by browser cache, which consists of files and other data previously stored on your hard drive. To modify this setting, first, return to the Privacy and services section of Edge's Advanced settings interface. The list of those sites, stored on your device's hard drive, makes up this browsing data component. Some browsing data components are even sent to Microsoft's servers and stored in the cloud, via the browser as well as by. While the integrated pop-up blocker is enabled, sites not on this list of exception are prevented from opening pop-ups.
Edge also allows you to specify which types of cookies, if any, are accepted by your device. These types of cookies can originate from an embedded advertisement, social media sharing button or other source found on the current page. Remembering all of these credentials can prove tricky, and having to type them often can be exhausting. We've already shown you how to delete all of your saved passwords, but the browser also allows you to view, edit and delete them individually. When this setting is enabled only cookies from the active domain are allowed to be saved.
To alleviate some of this tedium, Edge saves this data locally and pre-populates it whenever prompted by a Web form. Similar to the form data component, Edge also offers the ability to save and then later pre-populate your most commonly used login names and passwords. In addition to this information, which is commonly saved locally by most browsers, Edge also maintains other items specific to your browsing sessions and preferences such as a list of sites on which you allow pop-up windows as well as data which lets you access certain types of streaming content on the Web. A record of all websites which have been granted permission to obtain your location is maintained locally on your hard drive. This does not occur while InPrivate Browsing mode is active. To stop Cortana from assisting with the Edge browser, and therefore preventing it from sending any of your browsing data to the cloud, first return to the Privacy and services section of Edge's Advanced settings. Depending on your settings, Edge will ask you whether or not you wish to allow this behavior by a particular site.
Microsoft's for Windows stores a significant number of data components on your device's hard drive, ranging from a record of the websites which you have previously visited, to passwords that you use regularly to access your email, banking sites, etc. . Towards the bottom of this section is an option labeled Cookies, accompanied by a drop-down menu containing the following choices. Within this section is an option labeled Have Cortana assist me in Microsoft Edge. .
