    How to Change Microsoft Edge Tab Preview Hide and Show Delay Time in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

    Starting with Window 10 build 10565, you can now hover over your open tabs in Microsoft Edge and get a preview of what’s on those websites.

    If you like, you can change the tap preview hide and show delay timeout to what you want.

    Tab Preview hide delay - This is the amount of time a tab preview will continue to show after you move the pointer away from the tab and preview thumbnail. By default, the tab preview will close (hide) instantly when you move the pointer away.

    Tab Preview show delay - This is the amount of time it takes to show a tab preview when you hover your pointer over open tabs in Microsoft Edge. By default, the tab preview will show just under a second when you hover your pointer over a tab.

    This tutorial will show you how to change the tab preview hide and show delay time in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.

    Am I correct in assuming this tutorial applies only to legacy Edge and is irrelevant to Edge Chrome?
