Beside each is an “x” to close just that tab, and a “+” to the right of all the tabs to open a new one.

Type in the following in the address bar (at the top) “https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions”
If you are on edge, you should have a banner at the top asking permission to use extensions from other browsers. Allow it.
I personally use Grammarly, uBlock Origin, and Dark Reader
|Removing Extensions||At the top right corner of chrome & edge are 3 dots, left click them|
Chrome: More Tools > Extensions Keep only trustworthy extensions, remove the rest.

I suggest using:
Email – Outlook

(things published by Microsoft or your internet security are not peripheral)

I suggest maxing this to “Fast”

I suggest “Windows Inverted (system scheme)” or “Windows Inverted (large) (system scheme)”

“Drag” the window against the top of your screen
“Let go” and this window will maximize to full screen
|Split Screen (Win10 Only)||Left click at the top of any window, hold the mouse down and “drag” the window|
“Drag” the window against either side of your screen
“Let go” of the window to have it occupy exactly half of your screen
If any other windows are open, you’ll be prompted to left click on the screen you’d like to take the other half
TIP: This can be done with the corners of the screen to make it divide into quarters, but this is generally not useful unless you have an exceptionally large display
