    I booted up desktop this morning and clicked Edge; Edge opened as if it was the first time it had run with Edge's 3 option idiot's front page, nothing seemed to work, Favourites and Favourites bar had been flushed.

    I tried to reinstall Favourites with minimum success and decided to go down the update route even though I knew four failed updates of KB4015438 were listed.

    Ran search for updates and this time it seemed successful although it took a fair time to complete.

    Once it completed the Favourites were revisited; most favourites bar had disappeared and there were no Favourites listed; imported Favourites from IE11 however Favourites could not be added to either Favourites or the Favourites bar.

    So far nothing else is not working although I have checked very little!

    Would like favourites bar at top of Microsoft Edge

    Here is the answer, if you would like to show the favourites bar in Microsoft Edge

    Applies to Windows 10

    • Select More actions (…) on the address bar, then Settings.

    • Change Show favourites bar to on or off.

    the only way I get can favourites to work is do the import and then only manage them from within Edge

    if I try to drag and drop or manual change favourites in explorer it breaks it

    This is such a let down. I can understand the need to import from IE but this drag and drop into Favourites Bar should be allowed.

    I suspect the above is say the the "favorites-BAR) is not working or not installed at all in EDGE?
    and I hope that is not true.

    You can't drag and drop on it, but you can just do a Ctrl-D and then set the location to save as Favorites Bar. You can also drag and drop them within the Favorites Hub to arrange them.

    There is no reason to do it the long way or any other ways.
    You can actually drag things left and right once on the bar, so why not drop something in?
