When you type your search queries in the address bar of the Microsoft Edge browser, it offers suggestions matching your search query based on each letter you type. This is a new feature of Microsoft Edge with the latest Windows 10 update (Chromium). However, if you do not find it useful or simply don’t want the suggestions, you can turn off the search suggestions in your Microsoft Edge browser.
So, how do you disable the suggestions? Here’s how you can..
