This is because Windows is told to show Edge tabs when Alt+Tab is pressed. To “fix” this, provided that one is running Windows 10 20H2 (October 2020 Update) and later, open Settings (Windows+I)/System/Multitasking, locate “Alt+Tab” grouping, then from “Pressing Alt + Tab shows” combo box, choose “open windows only”.
A detailed discussion took place on WinAccess forum last year about this change:
P.S. This behavior is also the case with upcoming Windows 11.

Subject: Re: Managing tabs in MS Edge
Your experience does not match my experience with the new Edge browser. If I open a link by pressing CTRL+ENTER, a new tab is open, and I can use CTRL+TAB to move between the open tabs in Edge. If I venture into another program (such as my email program), Pressing ALT+TAB only shows me one window for Microsoft Edge. This is the behavior I know you are wanting but which, apparently, is not happening for you.
This assumes you are using the Chromium version of Edge. My version right now is 92.0.902.78.
When I used Internet Explorer I often opened several tabs. When using alt-tab to cycle through applications IE would show up once. Now that I am using Edge, when I use alt-tab to cycle through things I have to go through every tab that is opened in Edge instead of Edge showing up once. Is there a setting I can change so that Edge shows up only once if all the windows are tabs I opened with control-enter on links?
Hope this makes sense. Thanks for any help.
