How to “copy and paste” tables and images in the Edge browser

  • by

Edge, Microsoft’s browser, has expanded the possibilities of the “copy-paste” function by allowing it to be applied to sections of a web page such as an image, a header or even a table. The peculiarity is that this action also ensures that the original format of the content is respected.

To achieve this, Edge has included a new option that appears in the menu that is displayed when you click the right mouse button on the content of a web page. This is the new “Web Select” option , which can also be activated by means of a keyboard shortcut through the combination of the following keys:

Control + Alt + X

Once the option is activated, the content to be copied must be highlighted with the mouse, fully selecting everything to be copied while holding down the “+” button.

With this it is possible to be able to acquire content from web pages in a simple way but that also respects the original format . Until now, the action of copying and pasting was limited to text strings, losing the format if you wanted to copy the content of a table.

With the new Edge browser, based on Chromium , Microsoft is distancing itself from two previous generations (Internet Explorer and the previous generation of Edge) that did not meet expectations, which is why with the current generation it has reinvented itself from scratch. In this work, it is very important to have taken Chromium as a base, the same base that Google’s Chrome browser has.

In this line of improvement, Microsoft has introduced other improvements in Edge, such as an editor that helps improve the quality of the text by eliminating grammatical errors.
