With the recently released Windows 10 build 14291, Microsoft has finally added the ability to pin and unpin tabs to the Edge browser. It is a very essential feature which exists in every other modern browser. It was very surprising that Microsoft rolled out Edge without the tab pinning ability. Now, they have decided to add the missing feature. Let's see how it works.
Pinned tabs always appear at the beginning of the tab row on the left. For pinned tabs, Edge hides the tab title and the close tab button. Only the site's icon will be displayed. When you close Edge, all pinned tabs will be restored the next time you open it.

- Run Edge and open any desired website. In the picture below, I opened Winaero in two different tabs:
- Next, right click the desired tab you want to pin to show its context menu:
If you are using Edge on a device with a touch screen, perform a long tap on the opened tab.

To unpin the pinned tab, you need to right click it and select "Unpin" from the context menu.
Winaero greatly relies on your support. You can help the site keep bringing you interesting and useful content and software by using these options:
