    How to Turn On or Off Vertical Tabs 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.

    It's easy to end up with a ton of tabs open. The more you have open, the more difficult it becomes to find, switch between, and manage them. With vertical tabs, you can easily shift to view your tabs in a pane to the side. This allows you to easily see the titles and access controls like mute and close. It even makes it easy to reorder your tabs, with the ability to drag and drop to rearrange. When you want to focus on a specific page, you can collapse the pane. Anytime you need to switch between tabs, you can hover over the pane to see all the information you need. The new Microsoft Edge is the only browser to offer built-in vertical tab navigation allowing for a more streamlined experience.

    Starting with Microsoft Edge version 90.0.810.0, you can now resize the pinned vertical tabs pane.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off vertical tabs in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.

    On the latest Edge Canary I don't seem to have it. I've gotten so used to using it but it just disappeared. Anyone else?

    My edge flag for vertical tabs went from Enabled to Default. I changed it back to enabled and that fixed it. I don't know why it reverted but I will know what to do if it happens again!

    Odd. Default should be the same as Enabled. The Vertical Tabs flag is currently set to Default for me.

    Well, I did some testing and when I have the flag set to default it hides the button and turn vertical tabs off. Disabled does the same thing. Enabled unhides the button and lets me enable vertical tabs.
