Two weeks ago, I showed you how to use Microsoft Edge collections to save websites, images, and more in the browser. Now a reader has another question.

How can I a Word Document get it into an Edge collection? I tried dragging and copying. It didn’t work.

You can’t put a Word document file into an edge collection. Edge collections allow you to save images and articles from websites. You can’t add files. You can’t add a document or an image from your computer.

However, you can add text from a Word document (or any other word processor like Notepad or Word Pad.)

Just highlight the text and drag it into your collecton.

Or you can highlight and copy the text. Right click in your collection and choose Add note.

Past your text in the note.

Your text will be added to the collection.
