Browsers and Mail Enable or Disable Microsoft Edge Browser Tab Experiences in Windows


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.

Starting with the Microsoft Edge Canary 89.0.736.0 version, you can now enable a new Browser tab experiences in Windows experimental flag in Microsoft Edge that allows Windows to show open Microsoft Edge tabs in OS experiences like Alt + Tab, pinned sites, and more.

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

EXAMPLE: "Browser tab experiences in Windows" with Alt+Tab

Here's How:

1 Open Microsoft Edge.

2 Copy and paste edge://flags/#edge-window-tab-manager into the address bar, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)

3 Select Default (same as disabled), Enabled, or Disabled in the Browser tab experiences in Windows drop menu for what you want, and click/tap on Restart to apply.

4 When finished, you can close the Experiments tab if you like.


5 If enabled, you can now configure what you want to show in Alt+Tab.
  • Open windows and all tabs in Edge (default)
  • Open windows and 5 most recent tabs in Edge
  • Open windows and 3 most recent tabs in Edge
  • Open windows only

That's it,
