This article explains how to turn the “Tab actions menu” on or off in the toolbar on the Microsoft Edge browser.

The Microsoft Edge browser is the default browser in Windows 11. However, users can switch to their preferred or favorite browser anytime. Edge is based on Chromium, similar to Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers today.

Microsoft has added a “Tab actions menu” on the toolbar in Edge (Canery) that allows users to quickly turn on vertical tabs, search tabs, group similar tabs, view Recently closed tabs, view tabs from other devices, and more.

The “Tab actions menu” in Microsoft Edge provides users quick access to various tab-related features and options. Enabling or disabling this feature depends on personal preference and usage habits. Some users may find it useful to have the tab actions menu available for quick access, while others may prefer a cleaner and simpler toolbar.

Disabling the Tab actions menu can help users declutter their toolbar and create a more streamlined browsing experience.
