Microsoft is adding a new option in its Edge browser that will allow users to hide the title bar when using Vertical tabs. As highlighted by Reddit user Leopeva64-2, the feature can be enabled via a flag in the Edge Canary build 91.0.825.0 or newer.

The Vertical tabs feature, which is now generally available in the Stable Channel, is quite popular among users. As the name suggests, the feature allows users to display opened tabs in a sidebar instead of the horizontal tab strip. It’s incredibly handy for those who frequently use a lot of tabs at the same time.

With this feature, Edge Insiders will now be able to remove the title bar from the browser window when the Vertical tabs mode is enabled. This change should make it easier to focus on web content, especially on large screens. The ability to hide the title bar is one of the most requested features since the release of Vertical tabs, and it is being added based on user feedback.

For now, Edge Insiders can enable the feature through Edge’s experimental flags by heading to edge://flags/#edge-vertical-tabs-hide-titlebar and toggling the flag to “Enabled.” Finally, restart the browser, and click on the “Turn on Vertical tabs” button. They will notice that the title bar no longer appears at the top of the screen. There is also an option to revert this change by setting the flag to “Default” or “Disabled” instead.

In case you missed it, the Edge Insider team is currently testing many other features as well. Microsoft Edge Canary recently added the ability to resize the Vertical tabs panel, and it’s also available in the Dev channel.
