The Microsoft Windows insiders finally can take a peek of how the Edge’s extensions work. Even though the final plan is to make all the extensions available in the Windows Store, they can only be installed manually at the moment.
Here are the steps:
Step 1: Browse and download an extension from http://aka.ms/msedge-extensions.
Step 2: Select Run from the download notification at the bottom of the page.
If your default download folder hasn’t changed, you will see an extracted folder in there waiting to be installed.
Step 3: Click … in Microsoft Edge and then Extensions.
Step 4: Click Load extension button, select the folder you extracted at Step 2.
That’s it! You will see the installed extensions in the same Extensions settings page once installed.
It’ll be a lot easier when the extensions become available at the Windows Store, but, at least, we as the insiders can get a preview of some extensions already.
