Microsoft released a new stable version of its Chromium-based Microsoft Edge web browser on October 9, 2020. Microsoft Edge 86 introduces a rollback feature to go back to previous versions of Edge, Enterprise sync functionality, profile switching in Edge on Windows 7 and 8.1 devices, PDF improvements, and more.

You can check the installed version on the edge://settings/help page; Edge will run a manual check for updates when the page is opened so that the latest version will be installed automatically if it is not installed already.
New users can download the latest stable Edge version from Microsoft's website.
