First of all "Restart" the computer in the normal way from the Start button (rather than shutting it down then putting it on again).

If that doesn't help use Edge Repair. Go to settings cog, then:-
Apps > Microsoft Edge > Advanced options > Repair button.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You have to determine if the fault is in the monitor or the graphics engine, or the software.
If you are talking about a desktop machine, you can remove the monitor and see if it happens on that monitor with another computer. If it is the monitor, it probably needs replacing.
If you are talking about a laptop or all-in-one you are going to have to start with the software/driver first OR boot into BIOS set up since the BIOS does not use Windows Drivers and only a very basic built in generic driver. (This would be the second step on a desktop)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

AHhhhhh!!!!
I now know what you are seeing. On the top bar just to the right of the right most open tab you will find an arrow (Up or Down), it is a tail-less arrow and you may have to look for it a bit to really see it. When it is up and you click it the top expands and it points down (I think). Click on it again and it shrinks and flips over again. This is a totally useless feature and annoys many until they find it and figure out how to close it.

Fingers,

Can you post a screenshot of that arrowhead? I don't have it, and wonder why.
I'm using the version of Edge that came with the computer, version 25.10586.0.0.
That might be the difference.

I do not use Windows 10 at hoe for my computer, I'm still on Windows7. I do work with Windows 10 machines at work though which is where I discovered this.

They call it a tab preview bar. The arrow is just to the right of the + sign to add a new tab.

Okay, looks like that tab preview bar was introduced with the
Windows 10 Creators Update build 15002.
