What is Peek
Peek is a convenient way to quickly preview links without leaving your current Pinned Tab.
Simply click on a new link from a Pinned or Favorited Tab, and Arc will automatically open that tab in Peek rather than as a new tab! You can then do a quick action on Peek, and then close it without interruption.
Open or Close a Peek
To open Peek in a new tab: Hit the expand button or Command-O.
To close Peek: Click outside the Peek window, hit the X button, or Command-W.
Turn off Peek in Arc
If you want links to always open in a New Tab and never open in Peek, you can turn Peek off.
To turn off Peek, head to Arc > Settings > Advanced > and uncheck "Open the Peek window when you click links to other sites."
