    Edge Favourites - Won't cascade after first folder


    Hi,

    Hope someone can help with this problem.

    I am having another look at using edge and have come across this strange issue where, when you click on a folder on the favourites bar and the choose another folder, it doesn't open that folder it opens the side bar on the right and not always at the one I just chose. I hope this is something I can fix and not another "feature" *sarc

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    :)

  2. How can I edit favourites in Microsoft Edge?

    I have swapped to Edge from Chrome just to see if Edge won't eat as much ram as Chrome, but when I imported my favourites, they're all backwards. My folders are at the end and arbitrary favourites are now up at the front. How do I swap it around so that
    my folders will once again be at the front so I can access my most commonly visited sites without the headache of having to hit the arrow to bring up more favourites?

  3. How do you add a Favorites Folder to Edge Favorites Bar?

    I have the same problem with Edge that won't allow favourites to be moved to the Favourites bar. It also won't allow new folders or at least it doesn't work. I'm using a laptop.

    I've decided not to use Edge until it sorts out all these bugs. It looks like a good browser but I don't want to spend time fiddling around trying to get it to work when it came pre-installed.

    There is no fix, that is just the way Edge behaves. There is no nesting of folders within folders on the Favourite bar I'm afraid.

    There's no nesting of folders in the Start menu either, just the one folder level is used. Seems to be Microsoft's chosen style for all things 'Windows 10' I'm afraid.

    Then it is what it is. I'll try and get used to it, but it's not handy. I had forgot about the start menu... Thanks for your replies Edge Favourites - Won't cascade after first folder :)

    Like VooDoo I've been trying another look at using Edge & have puzzled over this. Since I use a lot of nested folders in Firefox, I'm afraid Edge has just lost the battle again..

    ... but it bears repeating that you *can* have nested folders in the vertical Favorites Pane (the thing that appears on the right-hand side)

    Kind of makes the Favourites bar more of a decorative feature rather than a useful one though? I mean if you end up in the side pane from the bar, why bother with the bar in the first place....

    Oh well, I tried.
