Click on the Hub (three lines at the top right of screen), a side bar appears and you will see the favorites star and three other items. Click on the star and your favorites will appear. From here you can organize by holding down the left mouse button and
picking up the bookmark or folder you want to move. If you have folders, open the folder and then organize the bookmarks. To rename or remove, right click on the bookmark, to create a new folder, right click in the bookmark window, to create a new bookmark,
click on the star adjacent to the address bar. There doesn't seem to be an obvious method of editing a bookmark instead of creating a new one.
I found out this morning through trial and error that IE hasn't been replaced. If you click on more options (the three dots at the top), you will see open in Internet Explorer. I guess edge is supposed to compete with chrome, but it's already lacking because
there isn't a full screen option. If there is, I can't find it.
Thanks for the response, but I'd already figured out the "click three lines and then the star", but I was trying to move an existing bookmark out of one favourite folder into another or just place it outside the folders - cannot fathom that one. Deleting
and recreating seems the only way which is a shame.
I was trying to get move stuff out of my Favorites Bar folder to another folder as well... and after some clicking/dragging/etc. managed to move stuff around by doing the following:
- Pin the Favorites sidebar open with the Favorites showing.
- Click and drag a bookmark or folder to the sidebar or to the folder hierarchy displayed at the top of the sidebar below the icons (i.e. << Favorites > Favorites Bar). When directly over the parent folder name, the icon above the bookmark being dragged
changes to Move... which you can then let go and the bookmark will be moved there. Moving bookmarks to subfolders within the sidebar doesn't give the "Move..." indicator, which seems inconsistent.
That works well. Thanks. Now how do I edit the url after saving the favorite. Say I save the favorite but want it to go to the home page instead of the page I saved, in other browsers I could edit the url and change it. Do I have to resave the favorite
again on the correct page. Seems awkward.
Thank you fjbii - That "pin the sidebar" was the key, the rest was then the usual hold down left mouse button and move routine. Did what I wanted to do. I suppose these little ways and means will become second nature soon as long as users have patience
and persistence, like you.
