Microsoft is getting more creative with using AI in its products. The latest AI feature in its Microsoft 365 roadmap is an announcement for Edge browser that will soon be able to create AI themes.

As per the listing mentioned on the Microsoft 365 roadmap page, the upcoming Edge feature will be called AI theme generator. It will allow you to create a new theme using text prompts and generate a series of images that will be applied as browser themes.

The dominant color will be applied to the browser frame after the generated image is applied to the new tab page. For e.g., if black is the image’s dominant color on the Edge new tab page, then the frame will turn black to match the image color.

Microsoft Edge only supports system default themes (dark or light) and inbuilt themes. You can download more from the web store, but with the AI theme generator, the new theme will be unique to your PC.

Generating AI images with the DALL-E 3-based image generation tool is already available in Microsoft Copilot. You can use Edge or Copilot on Windows to do so. Even Microsoft Paint has Image Cocreator (recently rebranded from Paint Cocreator). But all of these produce images in 1024*1024 resolution.

Edge’s upcoming AI image generator will produce images with higher resolution and clarity. It must do so to apply images as wallpaper on 1080P and above resolution displays. Microsoft also wants to improve the way you print pages using Edge.

Edge tests Clutter-Free printing

Microsoft Edge added a new “ClutterFreePrinting” feature to the Canary channel. In our tests, Windows Latest noticed a new “Smart Print” option while attempting to print pages using Edge.

The “Smart Print” feature is a tool to remove ads from the page and print only the main page content. We tried using both advertisement and non-advertisement websites. For example, on Wikipedia, there were no ads, but it messed up the original structure of the page.

When we tested it on a post on Windows Latest, it removed the featured image. Surprisingly, all the other images and the ads on the page vanished. Microsoft needs to fine-tune this feature so that the page retains coherence while printing.

Windows Latest previously shared Microsoft’s intent to block you from customizing Edge settings if your Windows license is not activated.
