    Help setting up Windows Edge


    I have been using Internet Explorer for many years and find it exasperating that some of the features I have become used to do not appear to be in Windows Edge. Can anyone tell me:
    1. How to remove the extra spacing in the HUB Favourites drop down list so all the entries are closer together?
    2. How do I search a web page for a string as you could in IE?
    3. Can you run more than one version of Edge like you could with IE and still can with file explorer?
    4. Delete an entry from the favourites drop down list (not the favourites bar). I imported all of my favourites and favourites bar from IE and ended up with one URL at the top level of the Edge favourites drop down list which I cannot remove? Could be a bug?

    1. Not sure what you mean by 'extra spacing'.

    Sorry my request was not very clear. The spacing I am referring to is the distance between lines in the favourites list as shown by the lower arrow in the following image. I have a large list of "Favourites" that I could see all of in IE in the one drop down list, now I have to scroll down to get to the lower ones. Removing or shrinking the icons would be a great help if it can be done

    I have tried to remove the entry shown by the top arrow using the "Remove" method you refer to but it won't disappear.
    I must have been looking at the "Find on page" heading and not seeing it. Next time I'll call in my grandson.

    I could run two versions of IE by right clicking the icon in the taskbar and selecting IE again. This allowed me to view two different IE windows (one on each monitor, I have two monitors) and compare the pages. I don't seem to be able to do this with Edge.

    Seems like nobody can answer my questions so I am going back to IE until Microsoft get their act together with Edge. IE is a far better implementation.
