@Elliot Kirk In Internet Explorer, Ctrl+K duplicates your current tab. In the new edge, it searches with Bing, a feature that already exists as Ctrl+E. There have been multiple times I've wished for a shortcut to duplicate my current tab without right clicking, and I'm asking for this shortcut to duplicate the current tab instead of searching with Bing in the address bar. Thanks,

-Cam

Hi @cjc2112, I see that Ctrl + K duplicates that current tab in both IE and the current version of Edge.  In Chrome, however, it does duplicate the behavior of the Ctrl + E hotkey and start a search in the Address bar / Search box.  I have kicked off a conversation to discuss this issue.  Thank you for raising it.  Thanks - Elliot
