Vertical Tabs are a fairly new feature of Microsoft Edge. As the name implies, this feature will list the currently open tabs on the browser according to a vertical list in the sidebar. All tabs are managed in this vertical interface and the content in each tab will also be displayed visually in an ordered list from top to bottom.
How vertical tabs work on Microsoft Edge
If you’re running Microsoft Edge version 89 or later, you’ll see a new Vertical Tab button appear in the top left corner of the tabs section.
When you click this button, the tab bar will change to a sidebar on the left side of the browser window. Here, you will see a list of all open tabs listed from top to bottom vertically.
By default, this sidebar also displays the title of the web page. You can collapse the sidebar (only show the website icon called the favorite icon) by clicking on the arrow pointing to the right.
To go back to the default (landscape) tab layout, simply click this Vertical Tab button again.
