The article provides instructions on how to add or remove a supported language in the Microsoft Edge browser. This is useful for users who frequent websites in languages other than their device’s default.

This article explains adding or removing a supported language in the Microsoft Edge browser.
The Microsoft Edge browser is the default browser in Windows 11. However, users can switch to their preferred or favorite browser anytime. Edge is based on Chromium, similar to Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers today.
Microsoft Edge will use your device’s display language to render pages by default. Users can add more supported languages to display web pages and native dialects.
The language you added appears at the bottom of the preferred languages already set for Microsoft Edge. Websites you visit appear in the first language in the list that they support.
There are several reasons why someone might want to add or remove a supported language in Microsoft Edge. For instance, if you frequently visit websites in a language other than your device’s default display language, you may want to add that language to Edge to understand the content better.
On the other hand, if you added a language by mistake or no longer need it, you can remove it to keep your language list more organized. Additionally, adding a language can help Edge display web pages and native dialects in that language more accurately.
