The Microsoft Edge web browser has been updated to offer another multitasking improvement, namely the ability to use the Alt + Tab keyboard shortcut to browse closed tabs.

The Alt + Tab shortcut has long been a feature in Microsoft Windows, but it was used for opening previously closed applications. Since more and more people are using webpages in place of traditional applications, users have requested that Microsoft update the keyboard shortcut to also open previously closed webpages. Now that update has been implemented.

Now that you have Alt + Tab controlling browser tabs, you can easily skip between open tabs to see what is on the next webpage, as well as quickly get access to the last thing you were doing.

In order to start using the new keyboard shortcut for the Microsoft Edge browser, you’ll need to be updated to Microsoft Edge Insider Build 85.0.561.0 or higher. You can find that version of the Edge browser by installing the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20175 or higher.
