The Windows 10 Creators Update comes with an eBook reader to Microsoft Edge, so users can easily read content in ePub and PDF formats in browser without third part apps. It is available on the Insider Build 15014 and works with ePub files that must not be protected. Here is the tutorial about how To read ePub files In Microsoft Edge.
Note: Make sure your system has been upgraded to Windows 10 Creators Update or higher version.
* First you need to get a DRM free ePub file from Windows Store on your Windows 10 tablet or computer. The ePub file has an ‘e’ icon, and that means this is an Edge supported file.
* You are able to right click the file, select Open With > Microsoft Edge. Another way is to double click it to load the contents. If you have installed other ePub reader apps, it will ask you to choose one from list.
You could set Edge as Default ePub reader App in Windows 10 by this way:
* Tap or click on the Start button, open the Settings app. Navigate to the “System” category, and select the “Default Apps” in the left-hand side menu.
* In the right pane, click on“Choose Default Apps by File Type” option.
* Find the “.ePub” on the left and select it, choose the Edge application on the right to set as the default.
Once Edge has loaded the ePub file, you can jump to a certain position by using the slider at the bottom. Edge browser also offers lots of useful functions, such as add bookmarks, increase the text size and the spacing between letters, search, change between light and dark reading modes, the ability to read text aloud, and table of contents to navigate the file.
