Like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge too, allows its users to group all the tabs kept opened in the browser. So, when you find two tabs that are related to one another in some way, you can easily group them. The tabs when grouped will be arranged in the back of the Group title. So, let’s walk you through the steps to enable or disable Tab Groups in Microsoft Edge browser.
Tab Groups enable users to organize tabs into visually distinct groups. This helps in easy viewing of simplified web pages.
