Internet browsers

All major Internet browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, and Opera, allow users to pin page tabs. This organization feature makes the pinned tab smaller and locks it at the top-left of the browser window. The tab stays in that location no matter what other tabs are opened or closed. Another convenient aspect of pinned tabs is they automatically open when you launch the browser, so you don't have to type the addresses of sites you visit frequently.

To learn how to pin and unpin browser tabs, follow the steps below.
