Windows 10: How Do I Hide Favicons in Microsoft Edge?

    How Do I Hide Favicons in Microsoft Edge?

    I realize that many people like seeing the favicons (website icons) in their bookmark menu, but I can't stand looking at them! How can I prevent these eyesores from showing up in the bookmarks menu? I tried to find an extension, but no such luck. Is there a feature in the settings to turn them off? I would like to turn them off in the bookmarks menu, as well as the bookmarks toolbar. Any help would be appreciated!

    Settings > Favourites Bar > On/Off > Icons only On/Off, much the same as in IE 11.
    If you don't want anything in the Favourites Bar delete them, again same as in any Favourites Folder in Edge/IE 11.

    Same in Chrome, and probably any other Web Browser.

    That's not what I was asking. I want to know how to remove the icons from the bookmark menus so that the text is the only thing that's visible. The goal is to have 'text only' bookmarks.
