A few days ago, Microsoft unveiled the 116 Stable edition of its Edge web browser. This release brought with it several features, such as support for Edge for Business and a method for users to attach the Edge sidebar to the Windows desktop. However, an additional feature was discreetly added that wasn't highlighted in the official release notes. This feature, as identified by a Reddit user, is the “Copy Video Frame” option.
Functionality of the “Copy Video Frame” Feature
The “Copy Video Frame” feature provides users with an enhanced method to capture screenshots from web-based videos, such as those on YouTube. The standout aspect of this feature is its ability to capture the video frame in its full resolution, irrespective of whether the video is being viewed in full-screen mode or not.
A Reddit user, u/MrElectrifyer, shared their experience with this feature, stating, “Was just watching a video on YouTube, and in an attempt to switch to Picture in picture mode, noticed this new and very handy ‘Copy video frame' option.” They further elaborated, “From trying it, it appears to take the full video resolution (e.g. 1920x1080p) clip of whatever video frame you're on, regardless whether you're in full-screen or not.”
Microsoft has expressed its intention to introduce more features to its Edge browser. One such feature, the AI-powered Smart Find, is slated for a September release. This feature aims to enhance user search experiences by suggesting related words and phrases, even if the initial search term is misspelled.
