Edge Tabs Actions Icon 2

Here's how to add or remove the Tab Actions button in Microsoft Edge. The Redmond software giant is replacing the Vertical tabs button with a new multi-function button "Tab Actions", which opens a menu with advanced options.

Recently, Microsoft has added the vertical tabs option to the Edge browser. It is an alternative layout of the tab row, where the tabs are arranged vertically. There is also an option to collapse the tab bar, so tabs turn into website icons. The vertical tabs change is one of the most exciting additions to the Edge user interface. 

Initially, Edge included a button in the toolbar to turn on or off the vertical tabs layout. However, in latest builds of the browser, it has been replaced with Tab Actions, a new multi-function with extra options.

In addition to changing the tab layout,  it allow the user to re-open recently closed tabs and add all tabs to a new collection with one go.

You can add or remove the Tab Actions button from the Edge toolbar. This option is useful for users who prefer the classic appearance of Edge with a horizontal tab row.

  1. Launch Microsoft Edge.
  2. Open the main menu (Alt + F) and select Settings.
  3. In Settings, click on the Appearance tab on the left.
