Drop feature coming to Microsoft Edge will let you share files between your computer and phone

02 November 2022
The feature is built on top of OneDrive and will also come in handy for sharing notes between your devices, not just files.

I would always use Pushbullet for this but it seems like Pushbullet is still stuck in the past with their UI. This will be a nice alternative

    Microsoft should add a potent file transfer system to their operation system first, not this crap.
    Bluetooth transfer with windows is a joke.

          Edge still makes Internet Explorer look like the best browser ever made.

            I have been using Edge on Windows and Mac as a primary browser for 1 year, and it's better than Chrome. I love the add-on features. And I still use Chrome, but for office-related work.
            Also, if you have the Google Drive app installed, you will need Chrome to log in.

                    Huawei's Distributed File System is more convenient and efficient. No need to load to cloud, no need to connect through wires, your phone will appear as E drive so long as it is nearby, locked or unlocked.

                            For me Windows 11 is the best. Even my really old laptop that came with Windows 7 runs the latest Windows 11 fine. But for phones Android is the best especially Samsung with One UI. Superb compatibility and very easy to use. As for web browser I use Chrome with Adblock Plus extension. But for phone Opera is the best as it has a good adblocker. Edge isn't bad. But nothing can beat Chrome if you want only speed. I've tried several browsers and have that result.

                                  Thats the most useless thing ever ,i actually removed microsoft edge from my windows 10 completely ,it was hecka hard but i did it .

                                    I hate the forced Edge Featured button on the phone browser.! If only Chrome would add the adblocker in the browser itself, I would go back to chrome! Only reason I use edge, is the adblocker. No need for 3rd party app.
