  3. Stop edge from opening new tabs from search links?

    Chrome does not do that. Problem is, you do a search, and click on a search link, it opens a new tab, and leaves the bing seach tab open. And after a while, you can have very many Bing search tabs open

    - - - Updated - - -

    In the left pane, click on the Pop-ups and Redirects option.

    STEP 4 does not exist for me.
