How to launch Edge on Ubuntu?

Brass Contributor

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but is the Edge shortcut supposed to be added to the Applications -> Internet menu on installation?  I'm running Ubunut Mate 20.04 (Mate 1.24.0).  Installed by downloading the .deb file and running with GDebiPackageManager.


I was able to add to the task bar with a custom app launcher that calls microsoft-edge-dev.  Otherwise I must launch it from terminal.


So far I like it and am looking forward to being able to sync profile.


Thank you.

@bnemec No worries, there are no stupid questions here. I've passed this along to our Linux team, and will let you know if/when I have any insights to share.
