  1. Edge favourites bar brief flash of icons


    Can’t say I noticed this before but it seems every time I open edge the favicons in the favourites bar will flash very quickly after a few seconds of opening. It won’t do it again whilst it remains open but if I close it and re open it will reproduce this same behaviour. Is it normal? Maybe it’s always happened and I just hadn’t noticed as it’s very brief. Anyone else notice the same? Maybe it’s part of a cloud sync of favourites that happens each time it is opened. More curious above anything else

    :)

  2. Favourites bar icons in Microsoft Edge

    I now have a favourites bar with ICONS very much like Chrome although a brief (one or two letter) name is needed. Hopefully the need for any name will be removed. To achieve this:-

    1 - Enable FAVOURITES BAR in . . . More Actions - the three dots top right.

    - Import your old favourites from Chrome - these appear as a Star Icon and a full web address - yuk

    2 - Open HUB - the three horizontal lines top right

    - Open the Favourites Bar by clicking the star option, Favourites and then Favourites Bar

    3 - Click one of your Favourites to open it

    - Now reopen the HUB and right click the link and Remove it

    - By clicking the Star at the right hand end of the address bar you re-establish the Favourite with the correct Icon and the option to rename it to a single letter (not as good as a blank but Edge is fast so worth it?)

    4 - You can re-arrange Icons by opening HUB and dragging the links up and down the list

    Come on MS - let us have a Favourites Bar with just the Icons.

    Favourites bar icons in Microsoft Edge

    Hi,

    Is there any way of displaying the icons of my favourites in the favourites bar a la Chrome where you can have just a list of tiles along the top that do not have names. At the moment Edge is still going the old clunky by not displaying the unique
    icon of most of my favourites and also not allowing me to completely remove the name. I want to have a favourites bar with as many of my favourites along the top as possible, not loads of generic stars with descriptions.

    Such a shame as I think Edge seems really fast but it seems to have completely ignored basic user-friendly things that makes things easier but I'll be sticking to Chrome for the time being until they sort this out.
