One of the most annoying parts of Microsoft Edge is that it’s finally being fixed after the development team has clearly succumbed to user complaints.
Most of the Chromium-based Edge browsers have been redesigned in recent months, including the context menu that appears when users right-click anywhere in the window.
However, users have long complained that this menu, when displayed, is cluttered with a huge list of options that are not useful or helpful at all.
Now, it appears that Microsoft has finally addressed the complaint, with the company saying a fix is in the works.
discovered by WindowsLatestWe hope that the next version of Microsoft Edge Canary will reduce the size of the menu to satisfy users overall.
The company has admitted that the context menu is too large and cumbersome, and surprisingly there is no way to customize its appearance.
Microsoft has heard in a Feedback Summary post that “the right-click context and … menus are both too long and wide and don’t provide a way to customize them. You’ve probably seen a few of the methods we’ve tried. You may have seen these issues in the Canary channel. to solve it.”
The changes should be rolled out in the next version of the Microsoft Edge Canary build right now, and we encourage users to try it out and provide feedback to the company.
This fix is the latest in a series of latest updates and upgrades that Microsoft Edge has released in recent weeks to ensure that Microsoft Edge continues to make the browser easier to use for all customers.
This change may be desperately needed, with recent figures suggesting that Microsoft Edge has lost or not gained market share in the browser space in four of the last six months.
According to the latest Statcounter figures, Edge corresponds to an estimated 200 million users with an estimated 4.05% market share on both desktop and mobile platforms, not far behind Google Chrome (64.34%) and Apple’s Safari (19.16%). However, it is ahead of Firefox (3.41%).
