    Edge Favorites Bar Order


    Is it possible to set Edge NOT to put the items in the Favorites Bar in alphabetical order but rather let me put them in my own preferred order (as can be done in all other browsers, including IE)?

    Thanks

    Yes, on the bar you can just drag the icon where you want it, if it's further down--such as under the drop down arrow, then you have to do it from within the Favorites setting.

    That method, which works on every other browser I've used, does not seem to work on Edge. Does it work for you? Have you actually done it?

    Yes it works for me and I'm actually doing it right now. I did a clean install of WIn10 a couple of days ago and still setting things up. Moving the icons around in the favorites bar is actually very speedy and smooth.

    Interesting. I got a reply to this same question from a Microsoft support engineer on another forum who acknowledged that the ability to drag icons on the Edge Favorites Bar does not yet work.

    Hi there. It doesn't work and never has. It's quite a simple browser. Not a lot of bells and whistles besides Reading and Web Note modes.

    Here's a video of it working for me--who knows, maybe mine is broke!

    Well, I'll be. Thanks for that, petrosal. I guess your is broke.

    Hmm. There's no setting, correct? I wonder what the hey....

    When I try to move mine either on the bar or in the menu I get the diagonally crossed red circle that appears which denotes it can't be moved.

    FWIW, I'm not sure I was able to do that when I first did the upgrade. I had so many other problems with Win10 that I had to do a clean install.

    Wonder if I'm the only one with the 'broken' fav bar??

    I figured out a way to capture this as seen below. I can understand if the feature is broke it doesn't let me move it, but what stumps me is that it's showing the "cannot-move" circle. So to me it seems it is not a feature.

    The only other thing I can think of is different versions. I have version 20.10525.0.0, which is Insider Preview build 10525.
