Microsoft Edge Tool for Clean Reading

Now that most of us on PC’s have received the Windows 10 upgrade, I think it is time to start exploring some of its many new features.  One that I have found so very useful is the Reading Tool, found in the upper right hand corner of the screen when you are on a web page.  It is the button that looks like an open book.

Here’s what I love about this tool.  If you are like me, you greatly dislike having to navigate your eyes around all the ‘extras’ on a web page when you are trying to read a blog, article, news story, etc.  And let’s face it, most people do nearly all their reading on line these days.  Well this beautiful little tool solves that problem.  Clicking this button will pull the reading material away and give you a reading screen free from ads, social sharing buttons, banners, and anything else that gets in the way.  So your reading screen goes from this:

Reading with distractions


Reading no distractions

It’s a beautiful thing, right?

Give it a try and please let me know if it enhances your internet viewing as much as it has mine.   For other tips on the new Windows 10 or Tuesday Tech Tips, be sure to visit and subscribe to my blog.  Happy computing!

I would like to give credit to for the great article on their site last week, which is the source of the screen shots I have used today.  Please check out the full story at
