You can now collapse Quick Links on New Tab Page in Microsoft Edge

A small improvement has landed in the Canary version of Microsoft Edge to the Quick Links feature. Microsoft is actively working on quick list. Recently, the company has added website suggestions and an update notification badge for Quick Links on New Tab Page. Today's update adds the ability to collapse the Quick Links section.


For supported websites, the New Tab page is able to show recent updates right in the quick link tile. It displays a badge with update count.  If you follow the link suggestions provided by Edge, you will be able to get your hands on this feature. Just hover over the quick link tile with your mouse pointer to see the updates.
