How to Enable or Disable Tab Groups in Microsoft Edge Chromium


Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

You can enable the Tab Groups experimental flag in Microsoft Edge to allow users to organize tabs into visually distinct groups, e.g. to separate tabs associated with different tasks.

Tab Groups includes the following features:

  • Add tab to new or existing group
  • Remove tab from group
  • Name or rename group
  • Open new tab in group
  • Ungroup tabs in a group
  • Close group to remove group and all added tabs

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable Tab Groups in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge in Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.
