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.

Choosing where to display your profile icon in Microsoft Edge is a matter of personal preference and convenience. Some users find it more convenient to display the profile icon on the title bar, while others may prefer it on the toolbar.

Additionally, displaying the profile icon on the title bar allows for more space on the toolbar for other important icons and extensions. Ultimately, it’s up to the user to decide where they would like their profile icon displayed for easy access.
