Luckily, if you are using Microsoft Edge, you can do some things to stop videos from automatically playing while you are using the browser.

Below, we are going to list down some things that you can do in order to stop videos from automatically playing while you are using Microsoft Edge.

First step:

The first thing that you would have to do is open Microsoft Edge.

Second step:

The second thing that you would have to do is click the three dots that are present on the top right corner of your screen.

Third step:

The third thing that you would have to do is hit the Settings button, which will appear on the drop-down menu once you click the three dots.

Fourth step:

There  are 2 things that you can do in this step.

You can either navigate through the settings or simply search it out.

In order to navigate, you would have to select “Cookies and Site Permission” on the left part of your screen. Once you do that, you want to click “Media Autoplay”.

In order to search it, you simply have to type “Autoplay” in the search box and hit the enter button on your keyboard.
