Users on Reddit are discussing the possibility of having both Ask Cortana and any other search engine on Edge’s Context Menu as a feature in the upcoming version of Windows 10.

A few days ago, Microsoft released a new build for Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring. In this build, the company added some performance improvements to the operating system to be released in September. The new build also brings a bunch of new features and bug fixes.

A new context menu item

Among all the changes, it looks like Microsoft also added a new context menu item for the Edge browser.

This new context menu item allows users to search the selected text with a search engine as well. Previously, Microsoft only provided the Bing-enabled Ask Cortana. But now, if you set Google as your search engine, you would have both Ask Cortana and Search with Google for the selected text.

This is a nice change from the company. You will be able to test this feature along with more new features by joining the Insider Program and downloading the latest update from the Windows Settings app. On the other hand, you can also download the ISO images and perform a fresh install.

Some users on Reddit are complaining that they don’t have the option on build 16251 even if they have Google set as the default search engine within Edge. The new item showed up when users had Bing and for some users who changed Bing to Google to test the feature. There could be some A/B testing going on, which could explain why some features sometimes work and sometimes don’t.
