Microsoft has been making its web browser, Edge, better in every possible manner. From performance, features, as well as looks. They say if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Microsoft has been giving its web browser, Edge a more minimalist look, especially with the rounded corners design that can be seen in various Windows 11 elements.
The problem now is that not everyone is a fan of rounded corners. And it’s understandable. Some people like their things plain and simple whereas others prefer a more minimalist and modern approach. So, if you’re someone that wants to switch back to the regular styled Microsoft Edge by removing the round corners design, this guide is for you.
How To Remove Rounded Corners On Microsoft Edge
So, if you have been digging through the Settings page of Microsoft Edge and didn’t find any settings or options to disable those rounded corners, it’s not the end. You don’t have to switch to another web browser. So, where are these settings you ask?
These settings are present within Microsoft Edge itself, but they are hidden. However, accessing them is super easy, and adjusting the settings is even easier than you would think.
These settings can be easily accessed via Edge Flags. You can easily access these Edge Flags by simply typing in edge://flags and hitting the enter key. Now, when you visit the Experiments page, you should see a list of various features that have been made available, as well as a search box at the top.
In the search box, simply type in Rounded Corners. You should get two results right away. The first one is Microsoft Edge Rounded Corners. Next to it, you should see a drop-down menu with the option set as Default. Click on the drop-down menu and select the Disabled option. You will also have to disable the make Rounded Tabs Feature Available. This removes their rounded style corners and tabs from Microsoft Edge.
Alternatively, if you don’t like the fact that Microsoft Edge has moved your profile icon from the left to the right, you can move it back to the left.
Simply type in Minimal in the search box. You should see the Microsoft Edge Minimal Toolbar Experience option. Make sure to also enable this option.
Once you have made these three changes, please restart Microsoft Edge. You can choose to do it manually by closing and launching it again, or by clicking on the banner that appears at the bottom of the browser which has a Restart button.
When the web browser restarts, you can see the changes that have taken place. Yes, the rounded corners and tabs have now been replaced with the original styling that was first available on Microsoft Edge.
