The block is in Edge (or any other browser) using Adguard
Because Microsoft Edge currently does not support the extension, users have to be satisfied with the standard functionality of the browser. In this regard, many postpone their transition to a new browser considering that the lack of extension necessarily implies the inability to block all those annoying pop-UPS and annoying advertisements that literally filled the entire Internet. Luckily, lock is possible without a browser extension, resorting to the help of one simple app that cuts ads even in Edge. It’s called Adguard and copes with its task very well.
What is Adguard?
Simply put, Adguard is a ad blocker. It protects against all types of Internet advertising including annoying teasers and pop-up Windows. To do this, the program uses filters, each of which has its own rules of filtering for all kinds of ad content. These filters are automatically loaded depending on the visited web sites. There are separate filters for Russian and English sites; there is even a Spyware filter that protects against sites that attempt to track user activity on the Internet. Detailed information about the available filters available on the official website of the developers of Adguard.
One of the main features of Adguard is its Autonomous nature. That is, it works regardless of browser used. By default, the tool knows how to interact with 33 different browsers, including Microsoft Edge. But even if this list does not (which is unlikely) the browser that you are using, the program will allow you to add it manually in the settings window.
Where to get and how to install Adguard
the program from the official website. After downloading run the installation file. In the first stage of the installation you will be asked to accept the license agreement. Adguard then prompts you to select the location on the disk where it will be installed. Select the desired folder (or leave the default path) and click Next.
In the next stage, do not rush to press «Next» if you do not want together with Adguard on your PC was installed a range of products from Yandex. First, cancel the installation of those programs (of course, if you really don’t need) and only then proceed to the next step of the installation, by clicking on the «Next»button.
Now wait for installation to complete. It only takes a few moments.
When the process ends, Adguard will take a few seconds to prepare myself for the first run.
Next you can choose the program interface language…
… and then you will be prompted to configure several filtering options. The last option is «do Not block useful ads» — deserves explanation. By default, Adguard does not block the «useful» ads that pass through its filters. «Useful» is contextual advertising on the pages of search engines Yandex, Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask.com and DuckDuckGo.com. If you don’t mind that you showed this ad, leave it as is, but if you don’t want that, uncheck the check box.
Finally, at the final step in the initial configuration, select whether you want to filter secure (HTTPS) connections and send anonymous information to the servers of Adguard.
How to work with Adguard
Once installed and running the first setup steps, you will see a nice and simple interface program. You can just close this window and let Adguard does its work. And running Microsoft Edge (or any other browser), you will not see any annoying ads. By default in the lower right corner of the browser will display the Adguard assistant icon (can be disabled, but does not interfere). It allows you to block any element on a web page and add in the exception site (as a whole or the current page), which in your opinion is not abuse, and therefore worthy to be in your list of resources, which is blocked should not.
If you are the type of people who check every detail, let’s quickly go over the interface of the program.
The Adguard window consists of five main sections: «Protection», «Settings», «Support», «License» and «About».
In the section «Protection» allows you to enable or disable protection to view some statistical information to inform the developers of Adguard on missed is and add to exception sites that you don’t want to block ads.
The presence of parental control Adguard differs from many other ad blockers. However, even after enabling it, all your children will be able to visit some not children’s sites, so I can’t recommend Adguard as a means to protect children from inappropriate content. For this purpose it is better to use something else.
In the settings section you can change the interface language, remove or add Adguard in startup to disable or enable automatic software updates to activate the automatic connection of the most suitable filters and so on.
To access more settings, you need to activate the advanced interface. It is possible to add custom filters, turn on or off blocking specific browsers, configure proxies, and so on.
The ‘Support’ section is designed to communicate with the team Application. To this end, it contains the electronic form for sending messages.
Inside the section «License» there is a possibility to activate the license (assuming that there is a key) or to purchase such. You can also check the status of the license.
A few words instead of a conclusion
While that Adguard is the only normal way to get rid of ads using Microsoft Edge. Yes, its a paid application and the trial period is only 14 days, but if you don’t mind to pay developers only 99 rubles, purchase a license for 3 months and continue to use Adguard, hoping that this time Microsoft will have time to add support for extensions in your browser newly.
