Keeping everyone on the same page with a project isn't easy. Links sent to you over email or chat can get lost or grow stale. Meet Microsoft Edge Workspaces – a shared set of browser tabs where everyone can view the same websites and files in one place in real-time.
Edge Workspaces can be used both individually or as a group to help manage projects and keep websites and files in one place. For example:
Instead of sharing multiple project links back and forth with a working group, you can create an Edge Workspace with your project’s websites and working files open as browser tabs and share it with the group with a single link. Updates to the tabs happen in real-time so everyone can stay on the same page using the Edge Workspace.
If you're working on multiple projects, you can create an Edge Workspace to organize the open tabs you have for each one. Whenever you want to work on a project, just open the project’s Edge Workspace and you’ll have all your websites and working files open in one place.
Note: To learn more about how you can use Microsoft Edge at work, see Discover your edge at work.

What is shared with an Edge Workspace?
What Edge Workspaces shares:
Its tabs, favorites, and history in real-time.
Group members’ profile pictures indicating which tab they are in when using the Edge Workspace.
What Edge Workspaces doesn't share:
Your logins, passwords, downloads, collections, extensions, or cookies.
Personal browser settings such as appearance or search engine.
Any tabs or data from outside the Edge Workspace.
Website content which only you have access to – for example, if you log in to your email in a shared workspace, only you will see your email content.
Your screen – group members sharing an Edge Workspace won't see how you interact with an open webpage.
Aside from these features, Edge Workspaces behaves like a standard Microsoft Edge browser window.
Join an Edge Workspace
To join an Edge Workspace, request the Edge Workspace owner or a member to invite you to their workspace. Then use the join link to begin working on the shared project.
Note: If Microsoft Edge is not your default browser, you'll need to copy the join link URL and open it in Microsoft Edge. To set Microsoft Edge as your default browser, see this article.
