    Microsoft Edge is not saving favorites under new folder created


    Hi!

    I've been using Windows 10 for about 2 months now and do like the feel of it.

    Now, I have a problem with the Edge browser not saving a website I try to favorite in a new folder under Favorites.

    When favoriting a website to Favorites or Favorite Toolbar, is saves the website as the star becomes yellow. But, if I make a new folder under Favorites and try to save to it, no luck. The star does not change to yellow nor does it favorite it under the new folder created.

    Additionally, when I try to remove the folder created under Favorites, right clicking gives me the "remove" option but when I select it, nothing happens.

    This is driving me nuts. Does anyone know a solution to this? *Shock

    :)

  2. How can I organize my Favorites in Win 10? .

    I am using Windows 10, which means I am using Edge. I upgraded from Win7, IE, and on IE had created many Favorites folders and sorted by subject within a folder, as well as sorted by order of interest to me within a folder.

    I don't want to sort alphabetically within Edge. And I want to be able to create new folders and save new saves to Favorites to various folders.

  3. how to make the order of saving bookmarks in favourite bar in edge like internet explorer to put new bookmarks in left side not in right side in windows 10?

    Hi Jagrata,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern, Edge does not work like Internet Explorer.

    If it helps, lets create a new folder/subfolder to re-organize the favorites.

    If you want to move the favorite to a new folder then, try the below steps and check if it helps.

    1) Open the favorite link, which you want to add to a new folder.

    2) Click on the Add to favorites or Reading list icon (Star button).

    3) Click on Create new folder and Click on
    Add
    button.

    4) Same way, open the favorite which you want to move to the new folder.

    5) Click on the Add to favorites or Reading list icon (Star button).

    6) Select the folder, under the Save location drop down menu.

    7) Click on Update button.

    Hi,
    Go to Task manager, right click Edge Process, click Details, right click Microsoft Edge CP.exe and End task, repeat this for all instances of Microsoft Edge.exe. Reboot and see whether it fixes the problem.

    Nope. No go.

    This is kinda frustrating. The edge process comes up only when I run the Edge browser. I get 2 Edge CP.exe running. I end one but cannot end the other as I think it's because the browser is running when doing this. If I close the Edge browser, so do the edge cp.exe thingys.

    *Sad

    Hello Msedge, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It sounds like your favorites may be corrupted in Microsoft Edge. If so, you may need to use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to reset and clear all favorites in Microsoft Edge to start fresh. *Sad
