How to install themes in Microsoft Edge

Here's how to install themes in Microsoft Edge from the Edge Add-on Store.

Microsoft Edge, the latest browser app from the Redmond software giant, is built using the Chromium engine. The same engine is used by Google Chrome. Both apps support themes, so you could install a Chrome theme in Edge without issues. Microsoft today released 23 gorgeous themes for Edge Chromium.


In addition to themes, Edge supports custom accent colors. However, what was missing are exclusive Edge themes made by Microsoft. There were a few, but not that much. This has changed. There are 23 new themes landed in the Themes section on the Edge add-on, so anyone can install and apply them.
