How to enable Edge Workspaces

  1. Drag an Edge Canary shortcut to the desktop.
  2. Right Click on the shortcut and select Properties.

  1. In the Target text field, add to the shortcut. There is a space before the – –
    --enable-features=msWorkspaces
  2. Click OK and the feature should now be enabled.
