While browsing on Edge this morning a gray bar about 2 inches wide appeared at the top of my screen, unprompted. To the left side of that bar was images of the tab that I had open. I had no idea what the hell it was or how to eliminate it, and have never had it happen before.
When I tried calling Microsoft support I was told that there was a charge for tech support. Having been duped before by such a scam I immediately closed that window and just to be safe I shut down and restarted the computer, and called my tech guy that does any repairs I need and was told that it is called a tab browsing feature and that Microsoft and that it can sometimes pop up unexpectedly with no prompt from me.
Interesting enough all that was necessary was for me to click on the little up arrow to the right of the tab image in that bar and the gray bar disappeared. I don't know if it is an Edge thing or if it is there with all Microsoft browsing options. Has anyone used that feature or had it just appear out of the blue?
I use msn.com for my home page. www.msn.com/ and it appears at the top of the page on the left.
Do you see the little x and the down arrow sign? if you click on that arrow it opens that wide gray bar that I didn't know about and couldn't figure out how to close. It just shows all the tabs that you have open. Duh. Once again the computer confused me, but that is nothing new, haha.

I think it only exists in Windows 10 and the Edge browser PB. I know it doesn't appear when I switch over to Firefox. I keep firefox loaded because I have had issues with Windows 10 and Edge not wanting to open PDF files.
