How do I add theme extension ?

Though, my extension was published on Edge Store but I want to convert it as a theme for web browser so that when someone downloads it, it'll automatically applies to its browser.

Please help me out, how to do that ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @HarshitVarshney-0049 ,

When you submit your extension to the Microsoft Edge Add-ons website, you need to pay attention to the fourth step, on the Properties webpage, enter properties of your extension. The properties are displayed to users in the Microsoft Edge Add-ons website. Especially the category property (required), which best describes the category of your extension. Listing your extension in the correct category helps users easily find your extension and learn more about it.

For more details on publishing Microsoft Edge extensions, please refer to this document.

Best regards,
Xudong Peng

The issue is not of finding the best category.

The problem is, I published my extension but when I downloads it, rather than applies to an entire browser as a theme it justs came as an active tab.
So, how do I make it as a theme ?

Please help me out.
Thank You : )

Hi @HarshitVarshney-0049 , Sorry for the late reply. According to the description of the corresponding document, the theme is a special extension, which is packaged like a regular extension, but does not contain javascript and html code. You can refer to the examples in this document to modify your theme extensions appropriately.
