This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the "New tab menu" drop menu on the toolbar in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.

The Microsoft Edge web browser is based on Chromium and was released on January 15, 2020. It is compatible with all supported versions of Windows, and macOS. With speed, performance, best in class compatibility for websites and extensions, and built-in privacy and security features.

Starting with the latest Microsoft Edge builds in the Canary and Beta channels, Microsoft has added the New tab menu drop menu on the toolbar that allows you to quickly create a new tab group and view or open browsing history and recently closed tabs.
