Today, Microsoft added a new option to Microsoft Edge Canary that allows users to disable the browser’s Bing symbol. The Bing icon was introduced by the firm in Microsoft Edge 111, and the manner it was executed has drawn criticism. The feature’s official name is Discover.
The button cannot presently be deleted from Edge Dev, Beta, or Stable Channels. Nevertheless, this won’t last forever as the software behemoth is presently testing with Canary Channel users the ability to remove the new Bing button from the Edge toolbar.
Users may now immediately access the Bing AI chatbot thanks to the new Bing button that is presently visible in the top right corner of the Edge browser. You won’t stay on your current web page because the chatbot interface opens in the Edge sidebar.
It is a known fact that the chatbot can do a lot of things, including giving you a summary of the website you are currently visiting. Nevertheless, you will soon be able to delete it if you don’t like it on the toolbar.
