Microsoft Edge now allows you to reorder tabs using keyboard

Recently, Google added an improvement to its Chrome browser that finally allows the user to re-arrange tabs using keyboard only. This option has been available for Linux and macOS users for several years. Microsoft now follows the suit, so Edge allows you to reorder the tabs using the keyboard shortcuts.

Edge users can now use the following hotkeys for managing the open tabs.

  • Ctrl + Shift + Page Up - move the tab to the left in the tab row.
  • Ctrl + Shift + Page Down - move the tab to the right in the tab row.
  • Ctrl + Tab / Ctrl + Shift + Tab - cycle through tabs forth and back.
  • Ctrl + Page down / Ctrl + Page Up - cycle through tabs forth and back.
  • Ctrl + 1 .. Ctrl + 9 - directly switch to the tab 1, 2.. 9. Use the appropriate number key for the tab to go.
  • Ctrl + T - open a new tab.
  • Ctrl + W - close the current tab.

    The addition of these two new hotkeys is a welcome change for advanced users and everyone who like keyboard shortcut. Actually, using the keyboard saves your time and makes your computer work more productive.

    Another useful change to the Edge browser is the option to save your typed passwords automatically and disable the PiP button for videos. Also, Microsoft is testing an integrated VPN to secure your connections to sites and make browsing private. It is called "Microsoft Edge Secure Network" and powered by Cloudflare.
