    Edge Appearance/Customization

    Why, for the love of all that is holy in programming, can I NOT change the dull grey appearance of Edge?

    I can customize (to a VERY small degree) my explorer windows. I get a choice of some colors. Edge ignores those border choices and stays with its dull grey.

    Right now there are no ways to get that done. With luck we might be able to in upcoming builds.

    But another question: why can I freely peel tabs away from their brethren, but once pulled away from the flock, they cannot rejoin? In chrome, ie, etc., I can stick tabs together.

    Better yet, when I open a new tab, that tab and its parent, retain the same color. I can tell at a glance which tabs are related to one another.

    The family being broken by MS.

    Sorry.. but there are really no features available for Edge at the moment. I wish it had a pin tab feature but it doesn't.

    You can customize Edge, just a little bit.

    1. Go to the triple dots in the top right hand corner
    2. Settings
    3. Then when you are in Settings the top is "Choose a Theme" and you can change between Dark or Light.

    Now that's all the better it is going to get. If you are looking for lots of customizing, Chrome is your best route. I love my Edge just the way it is

    Hope this helps you with your question. If you need more help, we are here for you.
