Microsoft Edge Browser Available these days in additional Languages

Microsoft has enabled multi-language support in its Chromium-based browser, and testers on Windows 10 and macOS are now able to change the language in the settings screen.


The most recent Canary and Dev builds released by Microsoft on both platforms include such capabilities, and the official changelog confirms this really is indeed possible in Microsoft Edge:


"Added more languages that you could display Microsoft Edge in."


I tested this new feature within the Dev build of Microsoft Edge and it indeed works like a dream for specific languages, including French and Spanish. Support for additional languages, for example Italian yet others, is expected within the coming updates.


To change the language in Microsoft Edge, you must first update towards the new edition of the browser, regardless of the channel that you're currently using. When you do this, in the browser take this road:


Microsoft Edge > Menu > Settings > Languages > Add languages


After you install the word what that you would like to use Microsoft Edge in, click on the three-dot menu next to it and hit the choice that reads "Display Microsoft Edge within this language."


More languages not far off


A reboot of the browser is going to be required to see the new language activated in the browser.


Microsoft Edge is a work-in-progress, so every new update brings more refinements, which means that the existing language support is likely to be improved too within the coming releases.


Meanwhile, if something doesn't work exactly as expected, such as your language coming with any mistakes, you can send feedback to the company using the built-in feature specifically implemented with this particular purpose.


No ETA is available around the beta and stable builds of Microsoft Edge, but if the testing advances as planned, there's a chance the browser goes live for production devices later this year. Meanwhile, anyone on Windows as well as on macOS can provide it a go by downloading the preview versions.

How you can Export Google Chrome Tabs to TXT or HTML

Tab support is among the best reasons for modern browsers, and these days the typical Internet user keeps more than a number of tabs running simultaneously no matter app, platform, and device.


But even though browsers themselves evolved substantially within the last few years, some features are still missing. Which is where third-party extensions come into play.


Having a large extension ecosystem is something that can help cope with the lack of certain capabilities, as third-party developers can make their own add-ons that others might find useful too.


This is actually the case of a feature that we're going to discuss about today. Exporting your active tabs to some TXT or HTML file is one thing that many people wish to accomplish, but which is impossible right now in the search engines Chrome without embracing an extension.


To begin with, why and who needs this?


Exporting the active tabs could help save a browsing session, but simultaneously, it also lets users share not only a link with someone else quite easily.


Also, by saving browsing sessions inside a TXT or HTML file and not in a dedicated extension, users can increase productivity, especially in those times when they're working on a study paper from not only one tool and syncing isn't available.


In most of the cases, a tab management or session manager extension must do the task, and this is the case with exporting tabs as well. The extension to help you with this is known as Session Buddy.


This add-on includes all kinds of extra features, like organizing tabs by topic, searching the open and saved tabs, but the feature we're interesting in concerns the support for exporting.


With support for Chromium, which means it may be installed on all browsers run by this engine, including Google Chrome and also the new Microsoft Edge, Session Buddy supports exporting to the following formats:


Text


CSV


Markdown


HTML


JSON


The output could be further customized with several details, because it follows:


Sessions


Windows


Titles


URLs


A preview from the exported submissions are also offered, so you can always begin to see the output before saving to file for.


After the extension is installed, you have to click its icon to access all options. You need to now see a lot of the present session, having a listing of tabs that are going to be included in the list you intend to export.


As said, Session Buddy also enables you to save multiple sessions and restore them from previous backups, but for exporting, you need to click the settings gear in the top right corner.


You're then prompted to configure all the above in line with the active tabs which were listed in the main screen.


One feature that this extension is missing is support for custom output locations. All files are automatically saved in the downloads folder on Windows 10 devices, which means you can't define another location on the pc. However, a little notification is displayed in the export screen once the file is saved, so that you can click the provided path to go directly to file.


It goes without saying there are a lot of other extensions that could help you export the active tabs to a file, but I think Session Buddy is one of the easiest to use because of its clean UI and simple approach.


Let us know within the comment box after the jump if you like using a different extension for exporting your active tabs.

Microsoft Reportedly Bringing Ads to Outlook App for Android

Microsoft Outlook is among the best, if not the best, email clients now available on cellular devices, but a current change in the app could force many users to begin searching for alternatives.


A study from MSPU reveals that Microsoft has started displaying inbox ads in the Android form of Outlook, and by the design of products, this only happens for non-Office 365 subscribers.


In other words, if you're using Outlook having a free Microsoft account, your corporate email, or any other provider, there's a chance such ads could appear inside your inbox as well.


The ads can be removed by swiping left, much like deleting an email, however they could return after relaunching the app.


Similar ad experiences on other platforms


At this time, Microsoft hasn't yet offered an argument on these ads, however they could very well be just an experiment that the clients are running on the limited number of devices. I'm not seeing any ads within the Outlook app on my Android device running the latest version of the email app.


This isn't the very first time Microsoft brings ads to Outlook, and also the company has previously attempted a similar idea in the Windows 10 version of the email client too. It's not known, however, if the iOS form of Outlook shows ads or not, but I'm not seeing any on my iPhone either.


Furthermore, ads happen to be there in the web-based version of Outlook for some time, so some believe the software giant could expand this push to all free accounts.


I've reached to Microsoft to inquire about more information about these ads in Outlook mobile and can update the article when and if a solution is provided.
