    favorites bar order

    I would like to add pages to my favorite bar over time, and have them be at the top of the order so they are visible. I don't want to have to go to the star drop down and find them.

    is that possible?

    Hi and Welcome!

    Are you using Microsoft Edge? Or Internet Explorer 11?

    If you are using Microsoft Edge, then the order of the Favorites Bar needs to be customized within the Favorites menu found from the top left "three lined" icon. Select Favorites, then Favorites bar and change the order there.

  3. how do I rearrange/edit the favorites bar in edge

    Actually, "Dragging to a new location" doesn't work if you have lots of favorites that don't all fit on the bar and some are relegated to the caret menu. You can't rearrange stuff from the caret menu to be visible on the Favorites bar. After poking
    around, I found that if you click on the hamburger menu and click on Favorites Bar, you can drag Favorites up and down in the list to rearrange.

    I got into this situation because I exported favorites from an old computer to my new computer and Edge doesn't preserve the order of the favorites on the favorites bar -- it just puts things in alphabetical order ! (Grrrr).

    Not the best of my knowledge. I've been waiting for a solution to this since the first preview was out.

    Click on three dots top right hand corner, then settings, turn on "Show the favourites bar."
    Now add your pages and save to favourites bar.

    that doesn't work. the new page is added to the end of the favorites tool bar, which is out of sight since I have about 20 of them.

    On the Edge broswer's Top-right corner, click on the "Hub"- the icon with three stripes

    Go to Favorites - the star icon

    From here, you can click and drag links around to organize your favorites. If you drag the links inside your Favorites Bar folder, they will rearrange themselves on the Favorites Bar itself according to how you sequence them inside that folder.

    tried that with the favorites bar, but changing the ones on the bar isn't working well. and I can't get ones down the side to the top of the favorite tool bar. I also tried to go to the favorites bar folder under c/users, but it didn't work either. are they in another directory i can edit? any other ideas?
