In Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft Edge has a new feature that allows you to take a group of tabs (each hosting a web page/web site/article, etc.) and shove them left into a tab storage area. This is a pretty neat feature, but after playing with it initially I really couldn’t figure out any day-to-day value – until the latest Cumulative Update for Windows 10 rolled out. I was reading an article on one tab and listening to a video playing on another tab, but also wanted to be a good update citizen and reboot my machine when prompted. Normally, I’d just give up on my article and video progress and just reboot. But, with the new Set Aside tab feature I was able to save those two pages, reboot, and come straight back to them after my Surface Pro 4 restarted.
What other uses can you think of for this feature?
