    I hastily opted to not be reminded any longer about the multiple tabs opened when browsing and whether or not to close all or just the one that's open at the time. I regret doing so and don't know how return to the factory default. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

    Close Edge.
    In the registry editor, you'll need to locate this key
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Main
    In the right pane you will need to create a new Dword called
    AskToCloseAllTabs
    AND
    Change the value from 0 (zero) to 1 (one).

    Using the Windows Registry Editor can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to re-install Windows to correct them. It cannot be guaranteed that any problems resulting from the use of the Windows Registry Editor can be solved. If you choose to edit the Windows Registry please understand that you do so at your own risk so unless you feel fairly comfortable and confident you should probably not use the Editor. Changes made to the Windows Registry can take effect immediately and those that do not will take effect following the next reboot of your computer, and a current backup is not automatically made for you....So manually create a system restore point, backup the registry and export the key you are editing for safe keeping before doing so.

    Your search must be an exact match. As the instruction says:
    Search for the phrase (with no spaces) "AskToCloseAllTabs", not "Do You Want to close All Tabs"
