    Edge - Can favorites be sorted?


    I am likely missing something here, but I can not seem to figure out how I can sort my favorites in Edge alphabetically?
    When a favorite is added it is added to the bottom of the list, and so on. I would like to sort them alphabetically if possible.

    Thanks for any tips,

    :)

    Can Favorites in Edge be synced with Internet Explorer Favorites?

    Hi

    I don't mind having two Microsoft browser in Windows but I don't really like having two sets of favourites.

    Is there any way favourites in IE11 and Edge can be managed together , so that when I add a new favourite to either in can be available in or transferred to the other ? At the moment I have to use IE11 because it seems to be (more) user friendly.

    Can Favorites in Edge be synced with Internet Explorer Favorites?

    No, not really....

    The very latest version of Windows (the Creators Update) has the ability to import and export to a bookmarks.html file. And Internet Explorer has always had this capability... so you *could* manually run import/exports operations between the two browsers...
    but that hardly seems like a reasonable approach.

    Yes they can I have mine sorted A-Z in folders.
    You can also do it that way without making folders.
    Have just checked and done it and it works.
    Just click on the favourite you want and drag it to where you want it and it should stay there.
    Make sure you left click when you drag it.
    Hope that helps you

    Thanks for the info, I was kind of hoping there might be a way to choose to sort alphabetically rather than move them one by one, but I guess once I get them moved and stay on top of it as I add favorites it won't be so bad.

    Thanks,

    This is one of the things I do not like about Edge. I prefer my Folders first in the list and the ability to sort.
    I have a large number of favorites and dragging each one is tedious.

    Edge - Can favorites be sorted?

    I am with you there. I would think having the ability to automatically sort would be a fundamental function. I have been dragging and sorting manually one by one today. Ugh.

  10. I have mine in folders sorted A-Z
    Then in each folder I do the same again
    Once done it is easy to just put each new file in the folder you want.

    Unless there is a compelling reason to use Edge, I would use anything but that.

    Well, there is now a way... Take a look at the 3rd-party EdgeManage application. It will allow you to sort all or portions of your favorites (plus a lot more features).
