The major software company Microsoft have developed many applications and software over the years, and their popular products are Windows OS and Office, which is not only popular but used by millions of people all over the world.
We use the Windows 10 and Office suite on a regular basis, so we can tell how much important they are to our life.
However, not every product is successful, and the company has tasted their fair share of flops over the years.
The most noted, consistent, and failure product of Microsoft is their web browser.
Microsoft has also added a browser called “Internet Explorer” which is popular but not used by many people.
The company has not given up on the IE, and they have re-packaged the browser by calling it Microsoft Edge.
I must say that it is by far the best web browser the company has added to the Windows OS.
Best Microsoft Edge Video Downloader Extension
There are too many browsers on the market, but not every browser has the ability to download the videos from popular sites like YouTube, Dailymotion, and more.
If you are someone who is using Edge browser on a regular basis, then you need to learn how to download videos from the Edge browser itself.
Unfortunately, Edge is left behind because of the support extensions available for it in the Store.
We are going to use Microsoft Edge, and by using an extension, you will be able to download the videos from popular sites like Youtube.
NOTE: We have tested the extension, then we have listed it below. We have tested several extensions from the Microsoft Store, and the majority of them don’t work. We have finally found one extension which works well on Youtube.
There are no specific requirements for this extension to work and you have to bear with us because there are a lot of steps you have to follow, but it will work on new Youtube design.
- You need to run new YouTube design.
- The file size of the extension is 1.01MB.
- It does not slow your PC down.
- The download links are direct, and the download speed will depend on your package, but it doesn’t get slower than your package.
Now follow the steps.
Step 1: Go to the store and search for extension “TamperMonkey” the name might be a little out of topic, but this is the one you need to download videos. But, there are many steps you need to know before you begin.
Step 2: Click on the search results, then you need to click on the Get option.
Step 3: As we have said that the file size is 1.01MB as of today. It may get updated, and the file size may increase a little.
Step 4: You have to launch the extension, or you won’t be able to install it.
Step 5: The Edge browser will pop-up, and you have the extension asking your permission before turning on.
Step 6: Click on “Show button next to the address bar.”
Step 7: You have to click on the TamperMonkey icon from the address bar, and you have to click on “Find new scripts.”

Step 10: The first option is YouTube best downloader 2, click on it.

Step 12: Another page will open, and you have to click on the “Install” button.
Step 13: As you can see the downloader script installed.
Step 14: We have shared the snapshot, where you can find the download links. Remember, it won’t appear right away, you have to wait till the page is loaded, after that the download links will appear.
Step 15: You can click on any download button, and the file will appear.
Currently, we are using this method to download the videos from YouTube. You will get 100’s of scripts from Greasy fox.
