Although Microsoft Edge gets a lot of bad press and doesn’t hold much of the Internet browser market, it’s actually one of the better Internet browsers available. It’s minimalistic, easy to use, secure, and is also one of the fastest browsers around, in most cases far faster than Google Chrome.

How Do You Ask Cortana For More Information About a Picture?

To start using Ask Cortana in Microsoft Edge, open Edge, then navigate to a picture you’d like to find more information on. Most pictures will allow you to ask Cortana but you may occasionally come across some that won’t. (Generally, these will only be headers or interactive parts of a web page) Once you have found a picture/image, right-click on it and select Ask Cortana about this picture or Bing Lookup if it doesn’t appear on the list.
