    Where Have These Icons gone in MS Edge?


    Apologies for asking such a simple question. I have recently had to move to a new laptop, which has WIN 10 Home on it and I have found all sorts of things that are different from WIN 10 Pro, which I am used to.

    At the moment, I cannot locate the icons below in MS Edge.

    What has happened to them, please?

    Have they been replaced with other icons? Or is this a difference between WIN 10 Home and WIN 10 Pro?

    Is the one one the right a Edge icon? Looks more like uBlock Origin.

    No, not a difference between Home and Pro, it's the difference between a very old version of Windows 10 and the latest one.

    I had to go back to version 1607 to find the icons in your screenshot. That's over two years old, have you been blocking windows updates?

    But the new look icons still have the same function as the old ones. In order: Favourites (aka Hub in 1607), Add notes, and Share.


    Current version of Windows 10:

    No, it's the uBlock Origin icon, obviously I'm referring to the three icons that appear to the left of the uBlock icon.

    Obviously it wasn't that clear to me.

    Thanks for the info! No I did not block updates, but clearly did not pay much attention either!
    really appreciate the effort taken to respond by everyone.
    Going to upgrade back to WIN 10 Pro ASAP if for no other reason than to stop looking for differences!.

    It's always a good idea to make a system image to an external HDD before undertaking a major upgrade. Macrium Reflect Free is commonly recommended on these boards.
