View, edit & an­no­tate PDFs in Mi­crosoft Edge

The Fall Creators Up­date en­ables you to view, edit and an­no­tate PDFs in your web browser – no third-party apps re­quired, says Ian Even­den.

Read­ing PDFs on your PC sounds pretty ba­sic — all you do is in­stall Adobe Reader, and then just open ev­ery PDF file you get with that app. Well, it doesn’t have to be like that. You don’t need to in­stall a third­party app, you can use one that came with your PC. Mi­crosoft Edge’s PDF read­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties got a boost in the Fall Creators Up­date, and it’s now a very ca­pa­ble app for those times only a PDF will do.

PDFs are easy to cre­ate but not to edit, and since they em­bed the fonts and graph­ics used to cre­ate their source doc­u­ment, you can be sure that what you’re see­ing is just as the orig­i­nal au­thor in­tended.

Us­ing Edge, you can read, an­no­tate and even draw over PDFs, be­fore sav­ing your notes to send on or re­open later. You may think Edge is just a web browser, but it has more uses than that, as we will see.
