Is there a way to close previous browser tabs through API where we sent an URL to open the default Edge browser?

So in the URL we must sent the command for this action, I came thus far that the previous tabs go blank but not close with following part in the string of the API: &close_other_win=true

It would be beter for our users if the tabs closes as they use the API multiple times a day and end up with numerous open tabs in their browser.

    Hi @Kleykens Jochen ,

    Please consider creating an Edge extension. Edge extension can help you interact with Microsoft Edge, including closing tabs through tabs API.

    If you need to distribute the extension to your users, you can refer to Alternative ways to distribute extensions.
