    Google will NEVER be found in my 'Top Sites'?


    I set my Edge browser to display a list of my most visited sites. 'Top Sites'.

    I used Google several times a day from day 1 yet it has never appeared on my top sites list.

    I have a single row of 8 top sites. Lots of empty space below and above.

    Any chance of having 2 or 3 rows of icons?

    Haha, I noticed the exact same phenomenon!!

    No Google Mail, or any other Google site ever makes it to the Top Sites in the Microsoft Edge Browser.

    Even though I access GMAIL 100000x more than any other site using my Edge browser :-) :-) :-)

    Why not just set your default search engine to google. It accomplishes the same thing, actually it's better since you don't have to first click on the "top site" (google) to get to it, and then type in your search.

    I think it came in with the Anniversary Update, but the first empty tile in Edge's New Tab page now has a '+' in the middle. Click on it and you can add any site url you want. Yes - even Google!

    And no, I don't think there's a registry tweak to increase the number of rows (in IE you can, but not Edge).
