Windows 10: "Add" or "Save" What/why the difference for Edge Favorites

    "Add" or "Save" What/why the difference for Edge Favorites

    After switching to EDGE from IE11 and importing all my IE Favorites I get sometimes ADD sometimes SAVE button when adding a new WEB site to my Favorites list.

    My problem - the ADD button works and I get the site added, but the SAVE mostly does NOT and the site is NOT added.

    I could not find a cause-effect pattern and would be very grateful for any help.

    Can you post a screenshot of when you get "SAVE". It is not something I can reproduce.

    Many thanks for your attention. You have already HELPED me much by advising (a link) How to take screen shots.

    I took the necessary screenshot with the SAVE button (to the clipboard method) and easily pasted it (to check) into a WORD page, but it did NOT paste here in my this reply (again I pasted it easily anew into the WORD).

    What to do?

    A better tutorial would have been this one: How to Upload and Post Screenshots and Files at Ten Forums.

    It shows you how to add the saved screenshot image to your post.

    When I was trying this, if I went to a brand new page I would get "Add". If the page was already marked as favourite, and I clicked on star, the word "Add" is replaced with "Save". This does not answer OP question but this is how I got the word Save.
