by Peter Anderson Writer

The best way to enable and deactivate the tab preview on Microsoft Edge is to use the Registry editor as well as the Downloadable .reg file. When the user opens several tabs in Edge, then if you hover your mouse cursor over a tab, it shows you the preview of the website, which is browsed in one particular tab. The features stated above are known as Tab Preview, and it is an advantage for the user to see the tab's content before finally selecting it. However, if you want to remove this Tab preview function on the Edge browser, then it can be done using the instructions mentioned in this article.

What is the Windows Registry Editor?

The Windows Registry Editor utility is a built-in system program database which conserves uncommon system and program configurations for the Windows OS. It also allows users to change the internal and deep settings of the installed computer programs, even third party applications. The core, equipment drivers, user interface, Security Accounts Manager, and services could all access the Windows registry settings.
