How To Install and Use Grammar Tools in Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge is the default web browser app in Windows 10. It's a Universal (UWP) app which has extension support, a fast rendering engine and a simplified user interface. The Windows 10 April 2018 Update added Grammar Tools support that allow you to break words into syllables and highlight parts of speech, such as nouns, verbs and adjectives. Here is how to get Grammar Tools in Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft Edge comes with Reader mode, which might be familiar to Firefox and Vivaldi users. When enabled, it strips out unnecessary elements from the opened web page, reflows the text and turns it into a cleaner looking text document without ads, menus and scripts, so the user can focus on reading the text content. Edge also renders the text on the page with a new font and formatting in Reader mode.

Grammar Tools can improve reading comprehension through increasing fluency for English language learners or readers of other languages, and they can also help build confidence for emerging readers learning to read at higher levels. Breaking words into syllables improves word recognition, while highlighting parts of speech supports reading instruction and can improve writing quality.

  1. Open the desired web site in Microsoft Edge.
