Configurare noua (How To)

Situatie

On Microsoft Edge, the Sleeping Tabs is a feature designed to reduce memory, processor, and other resources usage. When you enable the feature, open tabs will go into a sleep mode after some time of inactivity to free up resources to improve performance and battery life. The next time you switch to the website, the tab will resume automatically.

Open Microsoft Edge.

Click the Settings and more (three-dotted) button in the top-right corner.

Select the Settings option.

Click on System.

Under the “Save resources” section, turn on the Save resources with sleeping tabs toggle switch.

(Optional) Use the drop-down menu to specify how long before Edge should put a tab to sleep to save system resources. (You can specify as little as 15 minutes to 12 hours. The default setting is 2 hours.)

Once you complete the steps, open tabs will suspend after the time you specified to reduce system resources and save battery life.

Use the drop-down menu on the right of “Enable Sleeping Tabs” and select the Enabled option.
(Optional) Type the following path in the address bar and press Enter:
edge://flags/#edge-sleeping-tabs-immediate-timeout
Quick note: If you enable this option, tabs will suspend immediately and the option to set timeout will be grayed out.
Use the drop-down menu on the right of “Enable immediate timeout for Sleeping Tabs” and select the Enabled option.
Type the following path in the address bar and press Enter:
edge://flags/#edge-sleeping-tabs-site-characteristics
Use the drop-down menu on the right of “Sleeping Tabs use observed site characteristics heuristics” and select the Enabled option.
