With recent updates you can hide the window title bar in Microsoft Edge with vertical tabs enabled. This useful feature is available to everyone starting with Edge 93 stable.
Vertical tabs are one of the recent innovations in Microsoft Edge that allows users to optimize screen space. By default, the browser moves tabs to the pane on the left, but leaves the title of the window itself.
To allow vertical tabs to give users more vertical space for content on a page, Microsoft has added the option to turn off the window title in Microsoft Edge.
