You can now add comments to PDF text selection in Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge has received a little addition to the built-in PDF reader feature. If you select some text in a PDF file, you can right-click on the selection and add a comment to it. The sticky note-like user interface will allow you to express some idea regarding the selection you want to remember.

When you click on the Add comment entry, it will open the following dialog:

Edge Enter Comment Text For PDF Selection

There, you can type some note, and it will be attached to the selection once you click on the check mark icon.

The selection will become highlighted. You can open the attached note by right-clicking on the highlight and then selecting Open comment from the context menu.

Microsoft Edge is now a Chromium-based browser with a number of exclusive features like Read Aloud and services tied to Microsoft instead of Google. The browser has already received a few updates, with support for ARM64 devices in Edge Stable 80. Also, Microsoft Edge is still supporting a number of aging Windows versions, including Windows 7, which has recently reached its end of support. Check out Windows Versions Supported by Microsoft Edge Chromium and Edge Chromium latest roadmap. Finally, interested users can download MSI installers for deployment and customization.

For pre-release versions, Microsoft is currently using three channels to deliver updates to Edge Insiders. The Canary channel receives updates daily (except Saturday and Sunday), the Dev channel is getting updates weekly, and the Beta channel is updated every 6 weeks. Microsoft is going to support Edge Chromium on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, alongside macOS, upcoming Linux and mobile apps on iOS and Android. Windows 7 users will receive updates until July 15, 2021.
