Now that the has extension support it is becoming more and more feasible for the users. One prominent feature that users have mixed feeling about is when you get a pop-up preview when you hover over a tab. There’s no option in the settings to turn it off but you can do it with a simple Registry hack.

Turn Off Tab Previews by Editing the Registry Manually

Open Registry Editor by hitting Start and type “regedit”. Press enter and press OK to any confirmation dialog.

In the Registry Editor, use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\TabbedBrowsing

Next, you’re going to create and name a new value inside the TabbedBrowsing key. Right-click the TabbedBrowsing folder and choose New > DWORD (32-bit) Value. Name the new valueTabPeekEnabled and then double-click the value to open its properties window.

In the value’s properties window, enter 0 in the “Value data” box and then click OK.

Tab previews should now be disabled in Edge, though if you had the browser open while doing this you’ll need to exit and restart Edge. If you ever want to turn tab previews back on, just return to the TabbedBrowsing key and set the TabPeekEnabled value to 1.

Love them or hate them, tab previews are not so hard to turn off and on in Microsoft Edge if you’re willing to make a mild Registry edit. And it super easy to toggle the setting if you use our one-click hacks.
