When using Tab Groups, you can drag and drop tabs around to move them to another group, or you can right-click a tab and select the Add to existing group menu and choose the group you want to move it.

If you no longer need the tab in a group, right-click the tab and select the Remove from group option. To remove all the tabs, click the colored dot and select the Ungroup option, or Close group to close all the tabs of a group. Or you can always close each tab individually.

If you don’t like the current order of the groups, you can click and hold the colored dot icon to rearrange the order of the groups within the window.

While Tab Groups is a useful feature to manage open pages, remember that the feature is only available during the current session, once you close and reopen Microsoft Edge, the groups will be removed.
