Windows 10: IE Dumbed-Down after AU

    IE Dumbed-Down after AU


    My initial dislike of Edge was caused by being unable to shift-drag from the address icon to create a standard shortcut in a folder. Now it seems that Internet Explorer has been dumbed-down so it no longer allows this, only a pinned shortcut will work.

    In order to create a shortcut, hold CTRL + Shift keys and then drag the favicon in the Address Bar to the folder you want to create the shortcut.

    You won't be able to drag shortcuts back to Internet Explorer if you have 'Enhanced Protected Mode' on though, as this doesn't work since Anniversary Update. And more importantly, sometimes double-clicking shortcuts with 'Enhanced Protected Mode' on won't work either with IE set to default browser, so I think it's a bug rather than by design and presumably will be fixed at some point.

    Thank you. So the functionality is still there, just a different key combination.
