In a recent Windows 10 Creators update, Microsoft has made it easier to manage tabs in the Microsoft Edge browser. In this article we take a look at how you can use the new changes to improve your Microsoft Edge tabs management.

Use the new tabs preview bar

The first new Edge tabs management feature is the tabs preview bar. To access this on Microsoft Edge, you simply need to click the small drop down arrow. It is next to your currently opened tabs, at the top right side of the Microsoft Edge user interface.

The Edge tabs preview will reveal small previews of the content from every tab.

Hide tabs and Bring them Back Later

For a tab you’d like to come back to later, but it’s currently not needed, use the new Edge tabs management feature to put this tab to the side. To use this new feature, simply click the small icon to the left of your tabs that reads ‘set this tabs aside.’

When using this feature, you can choose to bring all of your tabs back. Alternative, you can close down certain tabs first and then bring back the remaining tabs.

You can continue to set tabs aside – each set of tabs will be grouped into their own section. This will essentially allow you to create your own tab profiles that you can switch between at any time.
