However, if this is a feature you want to use, you have to make sure it’s enabled in your profile settings before you access open tabs from other devices using the “History” menu.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to enable open tabs sync on the Chromium version of Microsoft Edge.

Once you complete the steps, repeat the steps on the other devices to start synchronizing open tabs.

All the devices must be signed in the browser using the same Microsoft account. If you use different accounts, you can create a new profile using these instructions.

After the feature is enabled, browse the web as always, and click the Settings and more button in the top-right corner, select the History menu, and then you’ll be able to access open tabs from other devices.
