    Features Added To Edge Right Click Options

    Up until today's updates Right Click when using Edge had very limited functionality however much to my surprise Right Click options now include Copy, Paste, Copy Link, Copy Picture and Save Picture. Still MIA is Create Shortcut but I won't hold my breath.

    Making Progress*Smile I wonder what else is new?

    Adjust width of favourites sidebar in Microsoft Edge


    As of now, the option to adjust the width for the favorites bar in Edge is unavailable. Though if you wish to provide suggestions for features to be added on Edge. You can click on the ellipses (. . .) on the top right of Edge, then select

    Please feel free to post here in the community if you needed assistance with your Windows computer and programs.

    Create desktop shortcuts to websites with Edge

    This works, but really? Can't Microsoft add a direct 'Save shortcut to desktop' option in Edge? Either from the three dots drop down or a right-click on the page itself? Why are a bunch of new features added to a new browser, but they eliminate the one
    feature that is probably the most useful. On a tablet, the Start menu tiles are cool, but most everybody is using Windows as a Desktop computer. Aaaghh.

    Features Added To Edge Right Click Options

    I didn't realize it until you said something gator, went and sure enough it does have those choices. I guess I'm still too close to the transition from 7 to 10, things like that you just never noticed in Win7 because they were there. Now when it's been added back in 10 I didn't think anything about it, obviously I don't use it that often, but something like that is only conspicuous in it's absence. The next big thing would be bringing the menu bar from IE to Edge, "File Edit View Favorites Tools Help" I don't see favorites coming back but the other five would be great.

    As far as the favorites I don't care too much for how MS has it set up in Edge, I have maybe 100 or more total, folders in folders in folders in folders. It was much easier to navigate in the IE favorites menu, I can always go back and use it but I'm trying to mostly use Edge. It does seem faster than IE, that could be my perception, but it seems that way.

    Maybe a little of a Subgenius motto "Pull the wool over your own eyes" (Subgenius dot com if you're curious, not for children but not porn) *Wink

    Yes!, MS needs to do something about the Favorites Bar or lack thereof. Without improvement there and without Add-ons I don't think Edge is going very far. But I do agree that Edge does seem a bit faster than IE-11.

    @gator2013 and @CmmTch

    I hate to burst your bubbles, but all those right-click mouse functions (and keyboard) you mention have always been in Edge and then some. e.g. Don't know the meaning of a word or a spelling either on a page or in a text box? Double click it to highlight, highlight holding right mouse button and drag, or via caret browsing then simply right click it or use keyboard menu key to ask Cortana. Cortana will appear on the right with info. This feature is ported from the Windows phone.

    Want your IE favorites? Press the hamburger Favorites menu (icon) and press import. One can then arrange by dragging and dropping up and down the list just as in IE. It IS as easy to navigate as in the IE favorites menu. There's no difference.

    Edge is a Modern WinRT Store app with its own menu bar, so you won't be getting the "File Edit View Favorites Tools Help" menu bar from IE back.

    There is a Favorites Bar. Add it in settings, then there's also advanced settings.

    There is also Reading and Web Note modes.

    Welcome to the Modern, gentlemen.

    The last position I held before retirement I had a company paid personal assistant and even she did not scan my personal emails. It will be a cold day you know where before Cortana does.

    Just because something is different and some say better doesn't make it so.*Smile

    Until use of extensions is added in the fall, Edge is dead to me.

    What genius at MS decided you can't edit the Favorites bar to show only icons instead of icons and text ?, until MS fixes this stupidity Edge is of no use

    Yes, that and most navigational features since W95. After all, it is one of the more important aspects of any OS. *Wink

    Features Added To Edge Right Click Options

    Don't worry about bursting any bubbles there Hippie, that statement sounds a little condescending. I guess some feel they are the knower of all things and make sure others are aware of it. I have no illusions about the menu bar being added back, that's far too functional for the modern users who only want to text and do social media, and whatever the heck it is they're doing with their phone as they're walking.

    Never have and never will use Cortana, as soon as she worked in the TP's I disabled her with all her spying functions.

    Not all things have always been in Edge, heck it wasn't even Edge to begin with, what about when it was Spartan? It was barely usable. Each update things are added to W10 and various other embedded programs. Until a user happens upon what for them was a change most times we don't know what exactly was in a particular update. For whatever reason MS has seen fit not to publish all the additions and/or changes in a given update.

    So welcome to Modern yourself, Hippie (that was sort of a snide comment), sometimes change is just change, not necessarily better, just different. Sometimes it's worse depending on what you do with whatever it is that's been changed. Maybe you're tired of reading comments from people about things such as Edge and what some user's feel it lacks, if that's the case don't read the post.

    Like many on tenforums you are very knowledgeable about computers and operating systems, tact can be useful too.

    It's HippsieGypsie to you, Mr. CmmTch. If I desire for you to call me otherwise I'll let you know. You do it again I'll report it. That's not a threat. It's a promise.

    If you take any of my comments as "condescending" I feel that's your problem. You spoke your mind openly. I'll speak mine the same.

    Perhaps you don't have a decent smart phone to know any better.

    Anyone who pays attention to install screens would know there's an option to refuse Cortana upon install. I suggest you save youself some time and effort and push "Not at this time". It won't be installed.

    We're not talking about Spartan here. It's Edge. As soon as they released it as such it had all the functions you two mentioned. That's been for at lease 2 or 3 builds.

    Thanks anyway, but I've been Modern since I first booted up W8 Preview back in June of 2012 then onto a Lumia Windows phablet January of 2013. Fantastic tech.

    You mean change as you see it. If you don't like don't use it. This is a support forum to get help people to at least try it for themselves, not a fud forum.

    Yes, I have a thing for people that come on spreading fud. To do so without knowing the product is even worse. I don't need a lesson in tact. I think it's the other way around.

    Have a good day and happy computing. *Smile

    You have a good day too HippsieGypsie.
    Sorry about misspelling your name, an honest mistake that is all on me *Redface I didn't see the "s" in your name and nothing was meant by it.

    No need to threaten to report me, as I said it was an honest mistake and nothing was meant by it.

    What I wrote was my perception of the response that was addressed to myself and gator2013, obviously that was incorrect.

    We do try and help each other here, some know more than others, but we all know something that can help somebody else.

    I apologize and hope there are no hard feelings.
