    Microsoft introduced support for extensions in Microsoft Edge in the Windows 10 Creators Update. Less than 100 extensions are available officially at the time for Microsoft Edge and that is likely not going to change anytime soon.

    While you can download and install several content blockers or password managers, you won't find most smaller helper extensions that Chrome or Firefox users have access to.

    Extensions run only in regular browsing mode by default in Edge. If you use the InPrivate Browsing mode of the browser as well, you have to enable extensions to run in it.

    The main reason why extensions are not enabled in Microsoft Edge's private browsing mode by default is that Microsoft has no control over the data collecting of extensions. This could lead to extensions collecting data while in private browsing mode.
