Since Samsung Internet is exclusive to mobile devices, users often default to browsers like Chrome and Microsoft Edge. These browsers operate within their respective ecosystems, making seamless syncing challenging. Nevertheless, it is possible to sync certain elements between these browsers. Let’s explore how to sync Samsung Internet with Microsoft Edge on your PC.
