How to Enable Tab Groups Flag on Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge brings new experiment flags to its users every now and then. Recently, they add a “Tab Groups” flag that one can access visiting edge://flags. In case you often end up with too many tabs and pages while browsing through the internet, this is a worth-trying feature on Chromium Edge. 

Managing too many tabs and windows on a web browser is really a difficult task. Once you enable the “Tab Groups” on Microsoft Edge, it becomes quite easy to organize different webpages. By default, this flag stays “Disabled“. All you need is to visit the experimental settings on Microsoft Edge to turn it On. Let’s explore the steps to enable and use this new feature on Chromium version of Microsoft Edge
