Microsoft Edge was developed by Microsoft and is included in the company's Windows 10 operating system, where it replaces Internet Explorer as the default web browser. Edge is missing the familiar address bar that runs across the top of other web browsers. In Edge, it appears halfway down the webpage when you click in the area that serves as the address bar. This is a little confusing to some users. Nevertheless, Microsoft encourages its use because it offers features not available in earlier browsers for Windows computers.

When you run across a specific image on the internet that you want to save, one way to save it is to copy that image's web address—its URL. Here's how you do this on Microsoft Edge.
