Microsoft Edge 123.0.2420.53 stable

What's new in Microsoft Edge 123

Feature updates

  • Added buttons to zoom in/out and reset the image position within the Magnify image dialog.
  • Added restart functionality in video dubbing.
  • Customize organizational branding using the Microsoft Edge management service. Admins can customize their organization's branding assets onto Edge for Business through the Microsoft Edge management service. This branding can help users signed in with an Entra ID (formerly known as Azure Active Directory) more easily differentiate between multiple profiles and browser windows through visual cues on the profile pill, profile flyout, and Edge for Business taskbar icon.

    This Microsoft Edge management service feature will give admins an enhanced experience to configure, preview, and customize how Edge for Business shows the following organization brand assets:


    • Organization name
    • Accent color
    • Organization logo
    • Edge for Business taskbar icon overlay

    Note: This experience is in public preview and can be accessed by opting in to targeted release in the M365 admin center. For more information, see Microsoft Edge for Business.

  • Automatic profile switching controls for Microsoft Edge for Business in the Microsoft Edge management service. The Microsoft Edge management service will provide admins with the ability to configure settings for automatic profile switching in the Microsoft Edge browser. This can help enforce context separation between their end users' work and personal browsing. Note: This experience is in public preview and can be accessed by opting in to targeted release in the M365 admin center.
  • Added Content Security Policy (CSP) in the browser to enable the Suno Plugin to work within the Windows Copilot.
