On Microsoft Edge, you can enable an option to save screenshots of the sites you visit that will then appear as thumbnail previews in the History tab, and in this guide, you will learn how to enable the feature.
In the latest preview of the browser (version 117) available in the Canary Channel (via Gizmochina), Microsoft is testing a new feature that allows Edge to take a screenshot of the websites you visit to make them available as preview thumbnails when hovering over the link in the History tab to make it easier to identify the page you want to visit again.
This guide will teach you the easy steps to enable previews of visited pages in the History tab of Microsoft Edge.
Enable automatic screenshots for sites on Edge
To enable Microsoft Edge to show previews of sites you visited, use these steps:
Open Microsoft Edge on Windows 11.
Click the Settings and More (three-dotted) button on the top-right corner.
Click on Settings.
Click on Privacy, search, and services.
Under the “Services” section, turn on the “Save screenshots of site for History” toggle switch.
Alternatively, you can open the “History” tab (Ctrl + H) and click the image button next to the delete button in the top-right corner to enable the feature.
Once you complete the steps, when you hover over the sites you visited, you will see a thumbnail preview to make it easier to identify the page you want to revisit.
