The tabbed browsing feature in mobile Web browsers like Microsoft Edge on your iPhone allows you to have multiple Web pages open at the same time. By opening the tabs window in the browser you can simply tab on the thumbnail image of the page that you would like to visit.
But while this tab feature is helpful, it can become difficult to navigate when there are a lot of pages open, and it can even cause the browser to perform a little more slowly. Fortunately you can close all of your tabs at once in Edge on an iPhone by following the steps in our tutorial below.
