Microsoft edge toolbar.

Original title: Microsoft Does it again.

Microsoft is always trying to make themselves relevant by taking away functions that consumers deem essential and run with unfounded belief that people's habits will change to fit Microsoft's agenda.

Where is the Toolbar? People want their File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools and Help menus. This is why I don't use Edge and why many don't like it. Every time Microsoft tries to do it better they make it worse.

Windows 8 thought it wasn't necessary to have the Start button. They had to add it back. Does this company do ANY market research with consumers?

Why are companies like Dell and HP allowing Microsoft to get away with this? If I were HP or Dell I'd start writing my own operating system and allow Microsoft to write software to accommodate PPT, XL and Word. Oh wait - that sounds like an Apple strategy.

When does Microsoft plan to add the Tool bar function to Edge?

Your pompous hostile reply is not needed.  I do not believe you are the type of person whose opinion I would rely upon.

I want to be able to save pages, for gosh sakesI  I can't believe how cumbersome Edge is to use on my desk top,  I am moving all my business to another browser.  I HATE this update!

I have been using IE11 since I upgraded to Windows 10 and Office 365 - paid subscription for one year. Even though I like many features of the Microsoft Edge browser, the toolbar/menu bar (whatever term you choose to use--the one with "File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help") is what EVERYONE wants back. I have a tablet, I have a laptop, I have a desktop PC which is what I use most often. To be able to use the features I want, I must forego the great features of Edge in order to use my toolbar/menus functions, which is every time I am on the internet!  So, I use both; I have both open right now. Please fix this feature for all of us who want to continue to use our desktop P.C.s and laptops that do not have touch screens. Not all of us have smart phones; not all of us are familiar with Apple tablets; not all of want to have this technology made more difficult; we just want to be able to find the menus we need to do our work.

Another thing I HATE is that Office 365 decides where to save my documents, pictures, etc. I want to save my items where I choose, not where Microsoft tries to force me to save it.

I concur with BeefRWijker...    We can't help you with that.

If you want, you can use the Edge "Send Feedback" tool to let Microsoft know that you'd like the old style menus and toolbars.

But personally, I believe it's not likely that any Metro (aka Modern, aka Universal) apps will every get the old-style menus.

This question could be more specific.  What are the functions from the old tool bar that you would like to find? I suspect many can be found if you know what to look for.  This raises two issues: Are the functions really missing? Are the functions in a less convenient or inaccessible spot?

I'm sure the functions are somewhere: Obviously, they are "in a less convenient or inaccessible spot?" All of our questions are basically:
1.  Where are the following functions?
     a.  File
     b.  Edit
     c.  View
     d.  Favorites
     e.  Tools
     f.   Help

2.  How do we access these functions?
     a.  Is there an icon? If yes, where/what does it look like/how do I add it?

     b.  Is there a macro? If yes, which series of keys can be held down all at once or in succession to achieve access to these vital functions?
     I admit, I haven't read this entire page yet; however, I think the above list is specific and someone at Microsoft should be able to give a clear, concise answer. This is what we all want. These are the answers/help we want. What good is a great browser, as I believe Edge is, if I can't find the functions I need to use it at all, much less easily?
     A different problem I have is with Office 365.  When I try to take a screenshot/screen clipping of an error/pop-up message so that I can preserve it to be able to act upon it, I get an error screen that says this function (the screenshot) cannot be completed with a window open. It's the open window that I need help with. How am I supposed to capture the error message if I can't take a screenshot--do I go back to trying to write it down? That's if the pop-up stays on the screen long enough for me to be able to write it down fast enough before it disappears on its own, which it does, and I'm not even able to copy it by hand, there's not enough time. 
     Just so I'm not told I'm not providing enough information for someone to be able to help me, I will divulge that I have a paid-for Office 365 annual subscription which is in effect and OneNote and Quick Note both are supposedly equipped with this ability.
    When these new features work as they are intended, it is awesome. I will be glad when the kinks are worked out of the new programs and functions and/or when I figure them out on my own, or when I learn the solution from other posts on this forum. I appreciate the help, both from Microsoft specialists, and those who share their questions and knowledge. Thank all of you.
     Sorry if this is too much information.

I find that using Windows 10 and  Edge without toolbars and menu bar is very difficult.  I will cancel Edge and go  back to Google.

Instead of Google, you can still Internet Explorer 11 and you don't have to tolerate the onerous, in my opinion, Google "Privacy Statement" which really should be named, "Lack of Privacy Statement".  At least with IE11, you can use all of Microsoft Office, including 2007 and 2016 (Office 365), and other versions as well, and with Office 365 you can encrypt your documents so that not even Microsoft can unencrypt them, much less mine the contents for information and marketing.

Thanks for the idea.  Question:  should Edge be open or closed when this is done?  I'm 75 and I tried it with Edge closed, but I got IE 11, but didn't see a menu toolbar.  Help!!!

Davut.

     Yes, you can have Edge and IE11 open at the same time. I do right now.  Have you been able to get your menu toolbar back in IE11?  Did Davut's answer make sense? There are other menu commands available as well when you right-click in the top bar of IE11, just click on each one you want.  
    Edge has an icon (which is a picture) that looks like an ellipsis (3 dots in a row) which is located on the top far top right of the screen just under the dark top bar with the "X", which is the "Settings" icon. If you click on it (the 3 dots), it gives you options, the 9th of which is "Open in Internet Explorer".  If you click on the 3 dots, a drop down menu becomes visible, go down to "Open in Internet Explorer" and it will open the identical window you are viewing in Edge in Internet Explorer 11.

     I hope you already have your problem fixed, but just in case, I wanted to try to help you.  Good luck.

It's unclear if you have already figured this out...   The functions of the traditional menu bar have been replaced with a "fly out" pane that you get to via the "more" icon (the 3 little dots) or the "hub" (the 3 little lines).

Please let use know if we can answer any remaining questions.

How so? I have resorted to Firefox. If I use internet expr 11 I get recover web page, or long running script. When Edge open, I go to the top and get open with internet explorer,then copy the web site anr firefox.Problem solved but a lot of wasted time
