    Back and Forward Buttons in Edge - dropdown list


    I was quite surprised at the lack of some of the basic features of Microsoft Edge that have been found in IE for years that are critical in my mind. One of these is the ability to have a drop down list on both the back and forward buttons in the browser to be able to quickly go to a page you've visited without having to click through each individual page.

    I was hoping that Edge would get that feature in some of the updates that have taken place, including this most recent November update, but it hasn't happened yet. Does anybody know if this will be a feature added? In the meantime, it's looking more and more like I'll return to IE.

    I've voiced concerns over this lack of a Drop-Down list when navigating in Edge. It's such a basic feature that I can't believe it was overlooked by the Edge development team. Even the most basic start-up browsers have this ability...because it's important and useful.

    I am a MS Windows 10 Insider and have been testing Windows 10 since the beginning last year and notified MS thru the Insider Hub the very first build and day that Edge was introduced about this which was several months earlier and we've had no reaction or response from them .
