How to Add or Remove the Web Capture button from the toolbar in Microsoft Edge
You can now enable a dedicated toolbar button for the Edge’s Web Capture feature. So, in addition to the menu entry and its keyboard shortcut, you can access it with a single mouse click.
Some time ago Microsoft has added a new feature to Edge Canary, called Web Capture. It can be used to capture and share a portion of a web page.
The feature is available from the main menu of the browser. It allows selecting an area of the currently open web page. Once captured, the fragment appears in a preview dialog, and can be further shared, copied to the clipboard, or saved to the disk. The function is located in the main menu.
The latest Edge Canary and Dev builds now allow adding a note once you capture an area of a web page. The annotation tool includes a pen option with a set of colors, and allows adjusting its thickness.
Finally, today’s Canary build adds a Web Capture toolbar button to the browser.
