    How to config the action when close a tab?


    Hi all,
    What I met is, when I close a tab, then the displaying tab is the right-side tab, but what I really want is to display the previous viewing tab, how can I make that?
    Thanks in advance!

    Depends on which browser you use.

    I forgot to say my browser is IE 11. Is this browser can do that?

    Hi there. I don't know of any way to configure it to open left, unless it's in IE settings. I'm on my phone so I'm not able to look.

    Ctrl/Tab keys will cycle through the tabs.

    Thanks! I also can't find any setting in IE configurations. I think it's a need for IE to add this option, maybe some people prefer to view the previous tab when closing one, like me....

    I haven't found a setting in IE to change this either, however, in the Firefox browser you can.

    Firefox about:config -
    double click the setting below to True
