In all desktop browsers, middle-clicking or CTRL-clicking on a link opens it in a new tab. In at least Google Chrome (and perhaps other browsers), this also works with the Refresh and Back buttons; middle-clicking Refresh will open another copy of the page you are currently on in a new tab, while middle-clicking Back will open the last page you were on in a new tab.

In Microsoft Edge, these controls don't work, at least by default. Is there another shortcut I can use to get this functionality, or a way to enable these Chrome-style controls?


No, it's not implemented. You can submit your idea to Microsoft via the Windows Feedback Hub
