This tutorial will show you how to add and remove tabs on the Edge bar 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.

The Edge bar (formally named "Web widget") is a feature of Microsoft Edge that lets you search and browse the web, see news headlines, check the weather, and more without opening a full browser window.

You can switch between a vertical or search only layout for the Edge bar. Then move and resize the Edge bar as you desire.

You can quickly adjust the content you see in Edge bar by clicking on the tab (icon) for your desired topic. By default, Edge bar includes tabs for your feed from MSN, Microsoft Bing, Outlook, and LinkedIn. You can add your own tabs on the side of the Edge bar that open the URL you want.

If you open the Edge bar, it will remain open even if you close Microsoft Edge.

I have a strong feeling that Microsoft will ditch this 'Edge bar' and replace it with the new Sidebar, in the Canary version the 'Edge bar' doesn't even have a 'Vertical layout' option anymore.

It'll be interesting to see how it all falls out.
