New Alt + Tab feature for Insider users
Starting with Windows 10 build 20161, all open tabs in Microsoft Edge will begin to appear in Alt + Tab , not just active in each browser window.
If you want less tabs or the classic Alt + Tab experience, Microsoft has added some settings for you under Settings> System> Multitasking . You can configure Alt + Tab to show only the last 3 or 5 tabs, or select ” Open windows only ” to disable this feature completely.
This Alt + Tab feature is currently rolled out to a human set of Insider users in the Dev Channel and requires a Canary or Dev build of Microsoft Edge (version 83.0.475.0 or higher).
This guide will show you how to change what appears when you press
Tab to switch between open apps and websites in Windows 10.
