- Microsoft Edge is testing a new “Screenshots” feature in its Canary version, which might replace the current “Web Capture” tool.
- The “Rich Screenshots” feature allows users to capture the entire web page or a specific region and edit it directly within Edge using various tools such as Square, Circle, Arrow, Draw, Mosaic, and Text.

Microsoft Edge is testing a new feature, “Screenshots”, that may replace Web Capture at some point in future. This new tool is available in Edge Canary on Windows 11, Windows 10 and macOS.
