Microsoft Edge Canary now has options that make it easier to hide its title bar when using vertical tabs. You can now set the browser to hide its title bar through a context menu and through the browser’s settings. Until recently, you could only enable this functionality through an experimental flag through edge://flags.
The new options were spotted by Leopeva64-2, who shared them on Reddit. Edge Canary features generally arrive through controlled rollouts, so you might not see the options yet.
Vertical tabs are a relatively new experience for the Edge browser that Microsoft is still perfecting. Initially, vertical tabs weren’t designed to reduce how much screen space the browser’s UI took up, but many people requested the option to hide Edge’s title bar. When vertical tabs are enabled and the title bar is hidden, Edge has a clean browsing experience.

Vertical tabs also allow you to easily jump between different tabs. You can see website icons for each tab and then hover over the panel to expand it. Because you can resize the vertical tabs panel to show full URLs, it’s easy to distinguish between different pages of the same website.
