Windows 10 trick unlocks secret surfing game hidden inside your web browser

MICROSOFT has hidden a fun game in the latest version of its internet browser, Edge.

Dubbed "Let's Surf", the mini-game has you take control of a surfer on a trip through perilous waters.

You'll have to dodge whirlpools, killer whales and even giant sea monsters as you attempt to travel as far as you can before you run out of lives.

Styled like an old-school 8-bit video game, Let's Surf is available on the newly released version of Microsoft Edge.

Edge comes pre-downloaded on all Windows 10 PCs, but you can download it on most modern PCs. Here are the system requirements.

You'll need a special version of Edge called "Canary" to play the game – an early version of the browser that you can download to try a new update before it's rolled out across the globe.

It's free, and is available on the Microsoft Edge website. Once you've got Canary downloaded, follow the steps below to try the game.
