    Can't get favorites from edge to chrome, and missing drop-down menus


    Things arent the way it says when I look it up, get more confused. Had IE, tried Edge, wasnt crazy about it, now did Chrome for default browser.

    Also, no longer have the words at upper left with drop down menus.....the file/edit/view/tools/help, etc?

    :)

  2. IE 11 Drop down Favorities

    The Drop down Favorites List from the Favorites Menu Bar is missing. The Explorer Bar still Shows all of my favorites. But, the convenience and organization of the drop down menu is missing

    Two Finger Horizontal Scroll Not Working

    There is no change in the status of my two finger problem. This problem still only persists on MSN.com and the links from articles/content on that page in Edge, IE, and Chrome. If I use a favorite from the bar or drop down menu the two finger horizontal
    scroll works. Also, it doesn't matter the % of zoom. As stated before, NO issues in Win 8.1.

    Sounds like #2 is easier, skipping an html thing (Im a real non-techie). It says to click "bookmark manager" after "bookmarks". But red dot shows clicking on "import bookmarks and settings" underneath bookmark manager (?). Clicking bookmark manager doesnt show anything about importing, so I clicked the import thing, then followed what it says after that. But still didnt work.

    You would want to click on Import bookmarks and settings instead. *Smile

    I did, thats what I meant when I said "...so I clicked the import thing..." (means what is stated is a mistake apparently?)

    Go ahead and post some screenshots showing what you see instead of what's in the tutorial to see if it may reveal what may be happening.

    Do you have the latest version of Chrome installed?

    I can't say for Chrome as I don't use it, but for IE and Firefox those menus are hidden by default to give more space for viewing web pages, but the appear when you press the Alt key.

    Dont know what's going on now.....maybe I somehow misread it before, it reads correctly now. Still, I did do it that way, and still dont have the favorites. And I just did the google browser from their site (must be the latest version)
    And no more simple right-click/"add to favorites" and other many listed options when on a website?

    And when I was using IE, those words did appear at upper left, did not have to hit alt key. And hitting it now does nothing.

    In IE it's optional. You can hide them by unticking View > Toolbars > Menu Bar. When turned off, the Alt key brings them back if you need them.

    Were you able to successfully import your favorites from Microsoft Edge to Chrome?

    To manually add bookmarks in Chrome, you:
    • Click on the 3 dots menu button.
    • Click on Bookmarks.
    • Click on Bookmark this page.

    In that case, you might try Option 1 to export them as a HTML file from Edge, then import the HTML file to Chrome.

    Wow, I keep going back and forth, to me it seems the wording and order of things is really confusing (for a non-techie anyway). Tut contents says 2 options, #2 has 1-4 listed on that page (didnt work), but 2 links of option #1 are not, ya have to click to go to another page. The first link is there, but now it also shows doing option 2 differently than prrevious page. Then I click the second link of option 1, "Import the html frrom mse to chrome"......but, it brings me to "To export google chrome bookmarks to html file", not what it says for the second link/section of option 1, Im going nuts trying to find the wording it says Im supposed to find/what to do.
