    Got an extra PC out of the closet to use for Skip Ahead since I don't want to do it on my regular Insider machine. The extra still has 16179 on it. Problem is, WU didn't offer 16251 but 16232. Wonder how many builds I'll have to install before it's current?

    That depends on if you perhaps would want to update via ISO or not........

    My regular Insider machine is already 16251 and I unfortunately didn't make an ISO. Guess I'll just have to let 16232 finish installing on the other machine and see what happens.

    My post was actually an offer in disguise. Let me know....

I've already moved one of the unsorted into its proper folder by dragging and dropping it. Now for the next one. That one moved nicely.

    My complaint now is that if I want to go to one of the sites, instead of hovering over the folder, I have to click to get my list of sites in it! It's not a real big thing, but, well, you know . . . it takes some of my speed away

    Have you tried saving all your most used sites on the "Favourites Bar" to be seen at the top of the screen for instant access.

    Thanks very much for the kind offer, tomcat. But I've already started installation of the 16251 skip ahead version.

    Better home-grown anyway! Not that it's a bad ISO, just better done naturally if possible, IMO. Good luck.

    I love Edge, have been using it as my default browser since long before Anniversary Update.

    Having said that, here's something regarding favourites handling in Edge I don't like.

    At some point you will most probably re-install Windows 10 and before starting the process, you will export favourites, then after re-install import them. Of course if no favourites has been added since last re-install, you can use old favourites file without exporting it again.

    If they change, new ones being added or old ones removed and you export / import them every now and then, the favourites menu looks stupid, to be totally honest. Here's an example from my laptop now, original favourites exported to file in April, I can't remember why I had to export again only a few days later, then again exported in June before my last clean install. Now, after a clean install on Wednesday, if I import that file again, it looks nested like this:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	image.png 
Views:	57 
Size:	21.0 KB 
ID:	146063

    Luckily, the file is just pure HTML which means that you can edit it. I have too many favourites saved to manually move them one by one on top of the folder hierarchy when imported, I'd rather edit the file. I recommend you use Code Writer (available in Windows Store) or any other code editor that both colour codes and marks start and end of statements clearly.

    Take the warning at beginning of the file seriously, only edit a copy of original file instead of the original one; a missing accidentally deleted comma might make the file unusable:

    Click image for larger version.

Views:	2 
Size:	155.2 KB 
ID:	146066

    If you know your way around HTML, you can edit the definition terms and lists (DT and DL tags) in file (copy, not original. Better safe than sorry!) to remove nesting which is clearly seen in file:

    Click image for larger version.

    I'm not saying you should do this every time you export favourites, I'm just saying that when the actual bookmarks you want to use are half a dozen folders down in hierarchy, you should at least think about if it would be a good idea to edit the list before importing it.

    At least not before Q4, end of this year. It was clearly told that both bug bash as well as two webcasts last week were last ones before official release of version 1709.
