    Change Address Manually in Microsoft Edge for Favorites


    Hello, I want to manually change the address to what I want it to be for my favorites. The reason for this is because sites I want to favorite redirect and I don't want to favorite what it redirects me to. How do I do this?

    I haven't found a way to do this in Edge, but I did find a work around. I don't know why they've made things so hard! What I did is open Internet Explorer (you may have to search for it, but it's still on Windows 10), navigate to the address you want to favorite, add the site to your favorites in IE, go into the IE favorites and right-click on the one you want to change the URL for, choose properties, then edit the URL and save or apply. Next you'll just import the favorites again in Edge and it should pop up. Hope this helps!

    Internet Explorer: click Start, click All Apps, scroll down the list to W, click Windows Accessories. You can then open IE or right-click and choose Pin to Start, will add at the bottom of the Tiles which can be dragged up the list. Also can click More and get Pin to Taskbar.

    You can use the 3rd-party EdgeManage application to edit the URLs inside the Edge Favorites (plus do a lot more)
