This tutorial explains how to always open links from Microsoft Edge Favorites in new tab. Luckily, you can do this without any external extension or addon. In the Canary build of Microsoft Edge there is now an option to make Edge open all the links from Favorites in a new tab. Soon this will be available in the stable channel. And in this post here I will show you how to do it.

One problem that you will face in Edge that when you click on a link in Favorites, Microsoft Edge will open it in the current tab. Sometimes, you can lose your data if you accidentally do it. To prevent this, you can simple open the link in the new tab and to make sure that you don’t forget to open the link in new tab, you can now let Edge handle it.
