As an avid Alt+Tab switcher in Windows, in all the browsers I miss the Internet Explorer's ability to open everything in a new window. When Alt+Tabbing this enables me to land on every website, that I have open, not just the website of the active tab.

 

Can there be a setting "Open links from other apps in a new window" in the new Chromium Edge to get this functionality back? It can be off by default, I don't mind. But when this setting is on, and I click a link in an e-mail app, open me a new Chromium Edge window every time.

 

Clicking on a website pinned to a task bar should then also open in a new window, if that website is not yet open in any of the Edge windows. Of course, if that website is open in one of the Edge windows, it should just bring that Edge window forward.

 

Thanks.
