How to Close a Tab in Microsoft Edge on an iPhone

Much like the desktop version of Microsoft Edge, the iPhone version lets you use tabs to have multiple Web pages open at once.

This makes it much easier for you to quickly switch between different Web pages at the same time. It also allows you to leave one page open and accessible while you read another one.

But having all of these tabs open can make it difficult for you to find the tabs that you need, especially if the other tabs were opened inadvertently or for a different purpose.

Luckily you can close tabs in Edge, and you can even choose to close all of them at once if you would like.
