I have a JavaScript script I desire to run each time I use Microsoft Edge; it should effect all webpages of a particular website.

It seems to me that naturally to do so I should install a userscript manager like Tampermonkey on Microsoft Edge and run the script through it, but that requires a Microsoft account and email which I don't want to have because I already have two Google accounts and emails which is enough heavy for me mentally.

Is there a way to run JavaScript script on Microsoft edge without installing a userscript manager?

Update - rleated: Can I mirror all my Google Chrome extensions into Microsoft Edge in 19H2?

  • You are aware that in the very near future EdgeHTML will be retired for Chromium Edge right? In fact it’s stable today, but the “final” release, won’t be until 19H2 – Ramhound Sep 16 '19 at 2:50
  • Hello @Ramhound - I never heard any of these terms... Please consider expanding this a bit into an answer - thanks anyway... – JohnDoea Sep 16 '19 at 2:53
  • I think I understand --- soon the Edge engine will change to be the same one of Chrome's and this will make the need to register for Microsoft for Edge extensions redundant... Well, that's nice, if it's a matter of days or 1 month, I think I can wait that... – JohnDoea Sep 16 '19 at 3:02
  • Why not just create a local webpage with your script imported and run on that page? Then you set that document as your home page and voila... that would seem to achieve what you want. – Mokubai Sep 16 '19 at 6:08
  • @JohnDoea - EdgeHTML is the engine Edge currently uses. Chromium Edge the replacement for EdgeHTML once it’s released. – Ramhound Sep 16 '19 at 11:29

This is not an answer but it seems I had a false assumption in the question:

Without having a Microsoft email account, somehow Tmapermonkey was installed on Edge anyway... I don't know to explain how (I didn't recognize any install process on user interface).
