    Display Favorites Bar in Edge


    I've been able to import my favorites from IE11 but no matter what I do I can not get the them to display across the top of the browser. Any suggestions?

    I had the exact same problem, what you have to do is manually drag your links into where it says "favourites bar". This worked for me, but because I have a lot of bookmarks its going to take ages!!!!

    OK, I see. I tried to drag then from the imported menu directly to the bar across the top. No wonder that didn't work. Thanks ryanm353.

    Its so stupid though, every other browser works fine with importing bookmarks or favourites and yet this is the only browser that seems to baffle everyone! I was onto MS Support about it and they didn't even seem to know and it took them forever to figure it out! lol. No problem! Glad to help

    Agreed. I tried it in Chrome that I don't really use and it's so simple. This is just complicated and tiresome, I gave up and back to IE 11.
