Organize Your Tabs with Microsoft Edge Tab Groups

If you have multiple tabs open at once, things can start to get confusing. Here’s how to enable Tab Groups for Microsoft Edge to keep things organized.

When your browsing the web you probably have tons of tabs open at the same time. Over time and having so many tabs open at once, things can start to get confusing. It starts to be harder to keep track of what’s what. Having what seems like hundreds of tabs open can make it difficult to stay organized.

Microsoft Edge has a feature that alleviates the craziness with Tab Groups. It allows you to create groups of open tabs to help you better organize the pages. At the time of this writing, the feature is not enabled by default so you need to access the experimental settings to turn it on.

Here’s a look at how to turn the Tab Groups feature on so you can better organize all of your open tabs.

Tab Groups for Microsoft Edge

To get started you might need to enable one of the experimental settings in Edge. To do that launch Microsoft Edge and type the following path into the address bar:

edge://flags/#tab-groups

Then under the Tab Groups section select Enabled from the dropdown menu.

enable tab groups flag

For the change to go into effect you will need to restart Edge. Click the Restart button.

To use the new Tab Groups feature launch Microsoft Edge and launch a few tabs. Right-click a tab and click Add to new group from the menu.

Using Tab Groups

Give the group a name and you can color code the group as well. If you want to add an open tab to an existing group right-click the tab and choose the group to add it to.
