Managing tabs

Tabs can be moved or pulled in and out of windows for easy access. Moving a tab can be useful if you want to switch easily between two tabs. Pulling a tab into a new window is helpful if you want to view two webpages side by side.

To move tabs:

  1. Click and drag the tab you want to move.
