Planned Some users lose their favorites on the update to Microsoft Edge NEW!

Updates 03/11:

We are really excited to announce today that we are moving every item we had Under Review last week to a Planned status! Enable navigation of PDF files via table of contents is now moved to Planned. Additionally, all of the new tab page items that were Under Review are now Planned for March. We know that users are particularly curious about those three, and we will have more information for you on those soon.

Lastly (but certainly not least), we have moved Provide option to keep specific cookies when choosing to clear browsing data on close from Planned to Planned for March.

Updates 03/19

One of our most popular sync items is being marked as Addressed this week! Enable sync of installed browser extensions between devices is now live in both Dev and Canary channels. Several of you noticed well before today, and we always enjoy seeing you all discover these features as we slowly roll them out.

Additionally, when we moved several new tab page items to Planned for March last week, we promised an update with more details. We posted that update in this discussion, which is now linked under each of those items

Why is it that EVERY time I try to install chrome based Edge on Windows 10 Home computer configured for English in the USA does it installs Edge for Chinese. 100% of the time. This has been happening since the product came out and still has not been fixed.  This is  MAJOR QA failure on the part of Microsoft.

New Edge also needs an option to choose whether or not to close tabs with or without a warning dialogue box that can be changed in Settings.

With the newest update, I can no longer print like I used to.  Before there was an option to expand print settings in the dialog box, and I could choose whether I was printing on photo matte paper or photo glossy paper.  It made a huge difference in my print quality.  Now, without being able to choose and adjust my print settings, my prints are smeared and grainy even if I am using the same high-quality paper.  I'd love if Edge could restore the previous options for users like me that rely on them for high quality prints.
