After an upgrade to Windows 10 20H2, the MS Edge browser started hogging the Alt-Tab switcher and injecting its tabs into it.

It seems right now it injects up to 5 tabs.

This is very annoying, as switching away from MS Edge takes anywhere between 1 to 5 presses of Alt-Tab (depending on how many tabs are open).

Hence the question: how to make it stop doing that?

Found a solution here:

  • Start -> Settings -> System -> Multitasking -> Alt + Tab

  • Change "Open windows and 5 most recent tabs in Edge" to "Open windows only"

    edge alt-tab disable
