Hi, is there any way to stop edge from closing when last tab is closed? Instead open a new tab when close last tab.

Thank you for the feedback @zeeshanali1993, right now we close the main browser window after the last tab is closed.

+1 for this, I just switched from Opera and this behavior is driving me insane. Please give us the option to change this. After a few hours of work/browsing, I just quickly CTRL + W and close all open tabs to "reset" the browser. If the browser closes with the last tab, that means I have to re-login to 1Password (super annoying because my password is really long).

@Deletedno idea if there's any solution available natively but you can use this extension to stop edge from closing when the last tab is closed.

Thanks, I know about that, but I'm not gonna install an old extension just to fix something so basic. If they don't want it in the settings, they should at least add a flag. I think that would be more than reasonable solution, since not many people are bothered by this, apparently.

Whoa, this is bad. Even if you have a tab pinned, and it's the last tab, you press CTRL + W and the browser closes. When you reopen it, that pinned tab is gone. Please fix this, Edge team.

@Elliot Kirk, having a config option letting us choose the behavior of the browser when closing last tab would be greatly appreciable.

e.g. : closing / opening default tab / opening home page / ...
