How do I use the Reading view in Microsoft Edge?

Answered by Yogi Kumar

Microsoft Edge allows you to easily switch to a friendly, simplified reading format with the removal of unwanted advertisements and distractions, via the Reading View tool.


The Reading View ‘book’ icon is located next to the Favourites ‘star’ icon, at the end of the search bar (to the right-hand side).


  • Left-click once on the Reading View tool to convert the webpage.
  • Slide left and right on your touch screen or use the arrows on the left and right-hand sides of the screen to navigate through content.
  • Within Reading View, it is still possible to access helpful tools such as Read Aloud and Add Notes.
