How to stop auto tab opening on Microsoft Edge 2020

It is very common for apps and software to contain web links for every small detail. These links get triggered when we interact with certain elements of the app or software, and this prompts the opening of tabs automatically in the browser. This can be very annoying and can also load the memory and make either the webpage or the app/software unresponsive. Sometimes, these links can also contain sensitive or malicious content which can further damage the computer.

If you have the new Microsoft Edge as your default browser, you will see that a new tab is automatically opened in the browser every time you interact with a link on an app or software.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to stop the auto tab opening on Microsoft Edge 2020.

Startup the Microsoft Edge browser on your PC/Laptop.



Click on the ‘three-dot‘ icon on the top right of the browser.
