With Bitly's browser extension, you can add Bitly right to your Microsoft Edge toolbar and quickly shorten the link for a page right as you're viewing it.
Microsoft Edge uses the same browser extension as Google Chrome. Here's how to install it:
- In Microsoft Edge, go to the Bitly extension in the Chrome Web Store.
- If there's a banner at the top of the browser window, click Allow extensions from other stores.
- Select Allow.
- Click Add to Chrome.
- Select Add Extension.
When the extension is installed, a Bitly icon appears in your browser's toolbar. If it's not in the toolbar, click the extensions icon (a puzzle piece), then click the eye icon next to the Bitly extension.
