    How to Turn On or Off Show Frequent Top Sites in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10


    Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

    Top sites in Microsoft Edge are your most visited (frequent) sites.

    The New tab page in Microsoft Edge displays Top sites by default.

    Starting with Windows 10 October 2018 Update version 1809, you can now see your top sites in the Microsoft Edge Jump List on the taskbar and Start menu.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off showing sites you frequently visit in Top sites in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.

    *note This will not affect the default Top sites or any sites you manually add to Top sites.

    Sorting the Edge's frequently visited sites

    Thanks for the time, Parth. You explain how to show the most visited sites. This I know. I've asked how to sort them, , and you do not address my question.

  5. Explorer Frequents and Edge Top Sites

    If your "frequent site" is in your History and you have AutoComplete in the Address bar enabled you may be able to find a match that way. If it is not in your History it is likely that it involves a redirect. Then you could try using the final destination
    explicitly. There would be a better chance of that going into your History and then consequently of showing up in the "Frequent sites" list.



    Good luck

  6. Explorer Frequents and Edge Top Sites

    Why does the Frequent sites for Internet Explorer and the Top Sites slots for Microsoft Edge have to revolve around an algorithm that thinks it knows your browsing tastes better than you instead of just being manually customizable by the user? It takes
    forever to get just one of the sites I want to see put on there, and even then the addresses for pop up ads have a higher rate of appearing. Not only that, but if you accidentally remove one of the sites you DO want, it's almost impossible to get it back on.
    This seems like an unnecessary over-complication of what should be a simple streamlining of the concept of a Favorites list.
