    How to Set Tabs Aside in Microsoft Edge 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 Windows 10 Creators Update build 15002, you can set aside groups of tabs to save them for later viewing. The tabs you've set aside will remain set aside until you either restore or remove them, even after closing Microsoft Edge or signing out of Windows 10.

    This tutorial will show you how to set tabs aside, restore tabs set aside, and remove tabs set aside in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.

    Hello jekko, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I'm afraid that I haven't found a way to disable this feature other than not using it.
