How to Save Memory with “Sleep Tabs” in Microsoft Edge

Some people like to keep dozens of tabs open at once, but those take up precious system memory. Tell them to close some of them and you get a nasty look. If that sounds like you, Microsoft Edge’s “Sleeping Tabs” will help you save RAM and your tabs.

Rather than actually closing tabs, the built-in function puts them to “sleep”

; by suspending them after they’ve been inactive for a while. Suspending a tab reduces the amount of memory and CPU it can use in the background. When you open the tab, it will wake up again.

RELATED: What you need to know about the new Microsoft Edge browser

Sleeping Tabs is available from version 88 of Microsoft Edge for Windows, Mac and Linux.

First, open the Edge web browser, click the three-dot menu icon in the top right corner and select ‘Settings’.

open the menu and click on settings

Then go to “System” in the sidebar menu.

go to the System section

All you need to do here is set the toggle to “Save resources with sleep tabs”.

turn on the switch for sleep tab

Once you turn on the switch, a few more options become available. First, you can decide how long it should take for a tab to go to sleep. Click the drop-down menu and choose a length of time. You can choose anywhere between 5 minutes of inactivity and 12 hours of inactivity.

Finally, if there are websites that you never want to put to sleep, you can rule them out. Tap the “Add” button.

click on the Add button

Enter the URL of the website and click ‘Add’. Do this for all the sites you want to whitelist.

enter the url and add it

That’s all there is to it. This shouldn’t get in the way of your browsing, but hopefully you will notice improved performance.
