    Yes, it was that bar. In the meantime, I just noticed another thing I'd like to mimic in Edge. Above the Favorites Bar on my IE11 computer are the following options (probably a tool bar):
    File Edit View Favorites Tools Help

    Is there something similar in Edge and if so, where can I find it and how can it be added above the Favorites Bar items?

    Thanks!
    You’re welcome, Dutch.

    As you know Edge is one of many Universal Windows Platform apps, which are designed to run across all devices so to be familiar using any device with touch screen, keyboard (including screen keyboard), and mouse. Here we’ll concentrate on how these apps are intermingled making tasking and storage across all devices easier. Much of this involves the cloud. Much of this is referred to by MS as “Windows as a service”.

    Edge is designed to be a lightweight, safe browser app with a new way of multitasking with its own new features. I’m sure new features will be added with time. For now, the tool/menu bar has been replaced with its own menu bar as with all UWP apps.

    You can save a web page via the “Web Note” feature (pen icon). Click that, make a note if you wish, and click on the floppy icon to save with an option of your choice, either to OneNote, to Reading list, or Favorites. The three-dot menu to print and other options. The option of OneNote to view, make (more) notes, or print at a later time.

    "What's new and tips" on the 3-dot menu or F1 is Help. This is very useful to learn features.

    The more one uses/plays with the menu the more one can see all the useful features. BTW, I have a tower PC, lappy, and a Lumia phone all with Windows 10. Also, I'm an insider and there are more features added to Edge in our latest Insider Preview build. F11 full screen is one.

    Make a note (or not) and save.

    The Windows 10 operating system introduces a new way to build, deploy, and service Windows: Windows as a service. Microsoft has reimagined each part of the process, to simplify the lives of IT pros and maintain a consistent Windows 10 experience for its customers. These improvements focus on maximizing customer involvement in Windows development, simplifying the deployment and servicing of Windows client computers, and leveling out the resources needed to deploy and maintain Windows over time.

    Universal Windows Platform apps

    Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps[1] (formerly Windows Store apps and Metro-style apps)[2] are apps that can be used across all compatible Microsoft Windows devices, including personal computers (PCs), tablets, smartphones, Xbox One, Microsoft HoloLens, and Internet of Things. UWP apps are primarily purchased and downloaded via the Windows Store.
