This article describes steps to turn on or off “Always open favorites in new tab” with the Microsoft Edge browser.
The Microsoft Edge browser is the default browser in Windows 11. Users are allowed to switch to their preferred or favorite browser anytime. Edge is based on Chromium, similar to Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers today.
With the Microsoft Edge browser, you can show or hide the favorites bar. When the favorites bar is enabled, all your favorite sites are added to the bar. You can organize, rearrange, and edit them anytime.
By default, every time you click on a link on the favorites bar, it opens in the same Edge window and takes you away from the current page.
Starting with Microsoft Edge version 110, you will have the option to enable or disable opening favorites in new tabs.
