Microsoft Edge Dev channel build 90.0.789.1 adds simplified right-click menu for PDFs and more

 

With the latest Microsoft Edge build 90.0.789.1, Microsoft adds options for a simplified right-click menu for PDFs. The company also states that the actual changes to the right-click menu are still being rolled out and hence the settings related to this functionality may not be functional at this moment.

 

The next feature of this build adds management policies for Quick View Office Files. This will enable you to control whether or not Office files can be opened directly in Microsoft Edge instead of being downloaded.
