Today, Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) is one of the best web browsers alongside Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge has also a feature called “My Feed” on its homepage where you can find useful information and news. However, some people may not find it helpful and can distract you while browsing or searching for information on Microsoft Edge. So, in this guide, you’ll learn how to get rid of My Feed on Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 and Android.

In the meantime, whether you’re using Microsoft Edge on PC or Mobile, you can completely turn off the My Feed option and Edge is totally customizable, unlike Google Chrome.
