    tile open file location


    Hello. Used to be able to "open file location" to rename a tile.
    Anyone know where they moved "tile" texts or tile shortcuts to?
    This is about build 17107

    not in the usual place?
    not showing "open file location" ?

    If that tile was created with Edge, there won't be a shortcut to it.

    Thanks Edwin. Yes, with Edge.
    I can make tile shortcuts with edgeTile but ok, well, I can live with that limitation.

    Without renaming, tiles made with "Edge" are cryptic
    as "whatever ….." until one runs a pointer on top to get a tooltip

    Yeah, they should at least provide a prompt for you to custom name the tile something short!

    The tiles made by Edge use the title of the web page, it's the same text as you see in Edge on the page's tab.

    Edge, in common with all the Windows Apps, doesn't have a 'file location' in its More> menu on Start. You won't see one for Calculator either, for example.
