How to Get and Use Grammar Tools in Microsoft Edge Reading View in Windows 10


Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

Microsoft Edge provides a reading view for a more streamlined clean and simple layout, book-like reading experience of webpages, without the distraction of unrelated or other secondary content on the page. This will bring whatever you're reading front-and-center. You can even change the reading view style and font size to suit your mood.

Microsoft Edge has built-in learning tools that make it easier to read EPUB books and websites in Reading view: Grammar Tools.

Starting with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, Grammar Tools support was added to allow you to break words into syllables and highlight parts of speech, such as nouns, verbs and adjectives.

These tools can improve reading comprehension through increasing fluency for English language learners or readers of other languages, and they can also help build confidence for emerging readers learning to read at higher levels. Breaking words into syllables improves word recognition, while highlighting parts of speech supports reading instruction and can improve writing quality.

This tutorial will show you how to get and use Grammar Tools in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.
