From here, you can click and open all the pages that you have added to the Collection. Here are a few other things that you can do with your Edge Collections:

Sync across devices

Collections are now part of Edge’s Sync. Your Collections will now be available from all your signed-in devices. You can add a page to your Collection from a mobile phone and access it later from your laptop or desktop computer.

“Open All” into a separate window

You can open all the pages in a Collection into an Edge window. Click the three-dots menu on the top-right corner of a Collection and click “Open All” to do this.
