Am I overlooking this, but is there no shortcut for accessing reading mode?

 

The old edge has it as far as I know, and using the same shortcut key in current Edge would just do overriding-cache reloading instead. My suggestion though, if it's getting implemented, it'd be better to use "alt+R" instead of "ctrl+shift+R." As far as I know the "alt+R" key isn't bind yet, and the latter one is already known for being overriding-cache reloading shortcut.

Is reading view working for you? In 79.0.300.0 it won't show up at all.
Try visiting this site:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/configuration/provisioning-packages/provisioning-install-ic...

and see if you will see the Reading View mode (Immersive reader) icon on the address bar.

if not, check in your flags and see if this flag is enabled:

Microsoft Edge Reading View
Enables Reading view in Microsoft Edge – Mac, Windows

Thanks, it worked on that site. I was trying a dozen other random websites and it didn't work. They need to fix it to where it can work on any site rather than specific ones that meet a certain criteria.
