  • Start Page: The default Microsoft start page with the bing search bar and several widgets of information.
  • New Tab Page: Another Microsoft page with the bing search bar and widgets of information.
  • Previous pages: Will open with the previous pages you were viewing when you exited the browser.
  • A specific page or pages: Here you can set any page to open every time you launch Edge. Again, “about:blank” will open edge with a blank page.
