How to pin tabs in Microsoft Edge [Tip]

In the previous post, we showed you how to try out the new extensions support in Microsoft Edge. It’s one of a few new features coming with Windows 10 Insider build 14291. The other new feature in Edge is the ability to pin a tab. It’s not pinning a tab to Start Menu or desktop as you may think, however, this feature lets you pin a tab in the browser itself so the tab will always there.

Once you pin a tab, it becomes a small tab that appears on the left side of the tab bar. As you expect, a pinned tab won’t go away when Edge closed unless you unpin it. This is a great feature if you have some specific websites that you visit very frequently. That way you can access those tabs instantly without open a new one. Here’s how to do it.

  • Open Edge and go to the website you want to pin.
  • Right click on its ab and select “Pin tab”.

As you can notice, the pinned tab will always be there and it does not have a close button. If you want to remove a pinned tab, just right click on it then select “Unpin tab.”

That’s it! It’s very easy to enable.

    This feature is only available in Windows 10 Insider build 14291 and later. If you don’t want to participate in Windows Insider, new features like this will be pushed out in a major update for Windows 10 probably this summer.
