Microsoft's Internet Explorer Web browser contains a tabbed browsing feature, which was introduced with Internet Explorer 7. Tabbed browsing, enabled by default, causes tabs to appear at the top of the Internet Explorer window. Each tab contains its own Web page. Tabs let you have multiple Web pages open in one browser window, instead of having a separate browser window for each Web page. If you want to add or remove tabbed browsing from your Web browser, you can configure this setting in the Tabbed Browsing Settings window.
Click the gear icon at the top-right corner of the Internet Explorer window and click "Internet Options" in the menu.
Click the "Settings" button under "Tabs" on the general pane of the Internet Options window that appears.
Click the "Enable Tabbed Browsing" checkbox at the top of the Tabbed Browsing Settings window that appears.
Click "OK" twice.
Close Internet Explorer and re-open it.
Tips & Warnings
- Click the "Tools" menu instead of the gear icon on Internet Explorer 8 and older versions.
- Close a tab by clicking the "x" on the right side of the tab at the top of the window.
- Open a new tab by clicking the "New Tab" icon to the right of the tabs at the top of the window.
