Browsers and Mail Enable or Disable Tab Groups Auto Create in Microsoft Edge


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.

You can enable the Tab Groups experimental flag in Microsoft Edge to allow users to organize tabs into visually distinct groups, e.g. to separate tabs associated with different tasks.

Tab Groups includes the following features:
Starting with the Microsoft Edge Canary 89.0.722.0 version , you can now enable the Tab Groups Auto Create experimental flag in Microsoft Edge to automatically create tab groups for users, if tab groups are enabled.

If you enable Tab Groups Auto Create, tab groups will automatically be created when you open links in a new tab from within a currently open tab.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable Tab Groups Auto Create in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge in Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.

Here's How:

1 Open Microsoft Edge.

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

3 Select Default (same as disabled), Enabled, or Disabled in the Tab Groups Auto Create 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.


That's it,
