Users of the new Microsoft browser, Edge based on Google Chromium will soon be able to install themes designed for Google Chrome.
If any of you who are already using the browser try to install themes from the Chrome Web Store you will find that it was not possible. The installation will stop showing an error, because the process is simply not supported in current versions of Microsoft Edge.
The Microsoft's new browser already supports the installation of Chrome extensions but must be enabled by the application options. But after a simple intervention, you will have access to the Chrome Extensions Store.
Microsoft has added a new feature to its latest browser version of Canary channel. The new setting allows users to install Chrome themes on Microsoft Edge. The feature is not enabled by default and should be unlocked from the browser's experimental features page.
How can you do that?
Inform Microsoft Edge from the Canary Channel. You can check for updates from within edge: // settings / help
If you have the latest version, open the internal address edge: // flags / #edge-allow-store-extension-themes.
You will see the option "Allow the installation of external store themes"
Allow themes to be installed from the store and enable the experimental mode using the menu on the right.
Finally restart your browser.
Open the topics page Chrome to try the new feature.
To remove an item you do not like, open the internal address edge: // settings / appearance and you will see all the themes you have installed.
Note that Google displays an alert to its users Edge who visit the Chrome Web Store. The notification states that Chrome is more secure for installing these extensions.
