Windows 10 Tip: Get started with Continue on PC in the Microsoft Edge mobile app

You know those websites, searches and articles that you pull up on your iPhone or Android phone? With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you can now forward them to instantly open on your PC, so you can continue what you’re doing – researching that project, shopping for those shoes, finishing that article – with all the benefits of the bigger screen.

Here’s how to get started:

Head to Settings, click on Phone and Add a phone. You’ll need to sign in with your Microsoft Account, if you haven’t already. Type your phone number, and click send.

Continue on PC

Once you click send, you’ll receive a text with a link to the app store to download and install an app.

Now, for a seamless browsing experience across your phone and PC, you can download the Microsoft Edge mobile app for free and try out the Continue on PC feature this way! If you’re looking at a website in the app that you want to continue looking at on your PC, simply find the Continue on PC icon on your iPhone or Android phone. Sign in with the same Microsoft Account you’re using on your PC.

Continue on PC

Next it will ask you if you want to “Continue now” or “Continue later.” If you choose “Continue now,” the website will open on the linked PC. If you choose “Continue later,” the website will show up under Action Center for you to get to later when you’re ready.
