This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the Sidebar button on the toolbar in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.

Microsoft Edge shows a Copilot button on the far right side of the toolbar by default.

When you remove the Copilot button on the toolbar in Microsoft Edge, Edge will show the Sidebar button on the toolbar in place of the Copilot button by default. This Sidebar button is used to toggle on or off "Always Show Sidebar".

You can choose to add and remove the Sidebar button on the toolbar while the Copilot button is turned off.


Here's How:

1 Open Microsoft Edge.

2 Click/tap on the Setting and more (Alt+F) 3 dots button, and click/tap on Settings. (see screenshot below)

3 Click/tap on Sidebar in the left pane. (see screenshots below)

If you do not see a left pane, then either click/tap on the 3 bars menu button towards the top left OR widen the horizontal borders of the Microsoft Edge window until you do.


4 Turn on (default) or off Show sidebar button for what you want.

The Show sidebar button setting will only be available while Show Copilot button is turned off.
