In early June 2022, Microsoft introduced a file and note sharing service for Microsoft Edge called Drop. Using this feature, you can share almost any type of file — ISO, PDF, EXE, APK, TXT, audio-video files, etc. from a Windows 11/10 computer and then download the shared file to another device.
However, before you try the Drop feature in Microsoft Edge, you should pay attention to the points that WinPoin will convey below to find out the details related to this feature:
- You need to be signed in to the Edge browser with the same Microsoft account to start sharing files. Apart from that, you also have to sign in to another device with the same Microsoft account to download the files you share.
- The Drop feature does not come with a separate storage space or uses a separate cloud service. Instead, the Drop feature will use the OneDrive storage space of the linked Microsoft account to share files as well as notes.
- There is no size limit for file sharing as this feature is completely dependent on free storage space and OneDrive file size limits.
- Files shared by you will be stored in a folder called Microsoft Edge Drop Files in your OneDrive account
- Files you download from Drop can be accessed from the following locations or folders on your Windows 11/10 computer:
C:Users%username%DownloadsEdge Drop Downloads
- The Drop service can be used by all Microsoft Edge users regardless of platform — be it Windows, Linux, Mac and Mobile Android and even iOS.
Those are some things you should know about the Drop feature in Microsoft Edge, for a tutorial on how to use this feature, WinPoin will be discussed in the next article
