How to Reopen Closed Tab in Microsoft Edge Chromium

Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

Have you ever closed a tab or window by accident, or simply realized too late that you weren’t done with a page? To help with this Microsoft has added the ability to quickly reopen tabs which were closed in the current or previous browsing session.

Opening a recently closed tab won’t just navigate to the page you were on, but will restore the browsing history of the tab itself, so you can go back to pages you previously viewed in that tab.

This tutorial will show you different ways to reopen a closed tab in the current or previous browsing session in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.

How to Enable or Disable DNS over HTTPS (DoH) in Microsoft Edge

When you type a web address or domain name into your address bar (example: www.tenforums.com), your browser sends a request over the Internet to look up the IP address for that website.

Traditionally, this request is sent to servers over a plain text connection. This connection is not encrypted, making it easy for third-parties to see what website you’re about to access.

DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) works differently. It sends the domain name you typed to a DoH-compatible DNS server using an encrypted HTTPS connection instead of a plain text one. This prevents third-parties from seeing what websites you are trying to access.

DNS over HTTPS (DoH) is a protocol for performing remote Domain Name System (DNS) resolution via the HTTPS protocol. A goal of the method is to increase user privacy and security by preventing eavesdropping and manipulation of DNS data by man-in-the-middle attacks by using the HTTPS protocol to encrypt the data between the DoH client and the DoH-based DNS resolver. Encryption by itself does not protect privacy, encryption is simply a method to obfuscate the data. As of March 2018, Google and the Mozilla Foundation started testing versions of DNS over HTTPS.

If wanted, you can enable the Secure DNS lookups flag for an experimental feature in Microsoft Edge to enable DNS over HTTPS. When this feature is enabled, your browser may try to use a secure HTTPS connection to look up the addresses of websites and other web resources.

When enabled, Microsoft Edge will use Google DNS servers for the secure resolver protocol.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable DNS over HTTPS (DoH) in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.

How to Add Note to Collection in Microsoft Edge Chromium

The Collections feature is now enabled by default starting with the latest versions of Microsoft Edge in the Dev and Canary channels.

Collections allows you to gather, organize, export, and share content on the web.

Microsoft designed Collections based on what you do on the web. If you’re a shopper, it will help you collect and compare items. If you’re an event or trip organizer, Collections will help pull together all your trip or event information as well as ideas to make your event or trip a success. If you’re a teacher or student, it will help you organize your web research and create your lesson plans or reports. Whatever you are doing on the web, Collections can help.

Microsoft has been working hard to add more functionality and refine the feature over the last couple months – some of which were directly informed by your feedback.

Here are some of the improvements Microsoft has made, based on your input:

Access your collections across your devices: Microsoft has added sync to Collections. Microsoft knows some of you have seen issues around sync, your feedback has been helping Microsoft improve. Microsoft knows this is an important scenario and are ready for you to try it. When you are signed into Microsoft Edge preview builds with the same profile on different computers, Collections will sync between them.

Open all links in a collection into a new window: Microsoft has heard you’d like an easy way to open all sites saved in a collection. Try out “Open all” from the “Sharing and more” menu to open tabs in a new window, or from the context menu on a collection to open them as tabs in the current window so you can easily pick up where you left off. Microsoft has also heard that you want an easy way to save a group of tabs to a collection. This is something that Microsoft is actively working on and are excited to share when it is ready.

Edit card titles: You’ve been asking for the ability to rename the titles of items in collections, so they are easier for you to understand. Now you can. To edit a title, right click and choose “Edit” from the context menu. A dialog will appear giving you the ability to rename the title.

Dark theme in Collections: Microsoft knows you love dark theme, and they want to make sure they provide a great experience in Collections. Microsoft has heard some feedback on notes which they have addressed. Try it out and let Microsoft know what you think.

Sharing a collection: You have told Microsoft that once you’ve collected content you want to share it with others. Microsoft has lots of work planned to better support sharing scenarios. One way you can share today is through the “Copy all” option added to the “Sharing and more” menu, or by selecting individual items and copying them via the “Copy” button in the toolbar. Once you’ve copied items from your Collection, you can then paste them into your favorite apps, like OneNote or Email. If you are pasting into an app that supports HTML you will get a rich copy of the content.

This tutorial will show you how to add a note as content to a collection for your Collections in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.
