Steps to reproduce

The new Favorites are simply awful in Edge. Favorites and how they were handled was perfect in IE. We either need a MUCH better and fast way to manage favorites (similar to in a Windows Browser) or you need to save the favorites links in a known folder that is easily reachable and manageable.

    • The way Edge handles favorites is totally unacceptable and just moronic. In an enterprise environment where your constantly replacing, repairing and rebuilding machines, if you have users that use Edge exclusively as Microsoft would like to have it, then you MUST have a way to be able to move, copy, export and import favorites from one instance of Edge to another. It makes no sense the way Microsoft has it now and the mere fact that Microsoft has not addressed the issue to now makes one think that they are moving ever closer to becoming their industry adversary Apple in the effort to control and force users to relinquish their personal data to the cloud or other more unscrupulous mechanism. How can Microsoft expect users and businesses to have any trust or desire to adopt any of the new adaptations if they continue to use these types of nefarious schemes and tactics to control the content and thereby their customers? What must Microsoft be thinking? People are as dumb and naïve as they may think. That is why companies and well as users are opting out of using these new apps and things and finding ways to work around them or subvert them for apps or methods that work better and provide the users the basic functionality that they need and desire without being control by some bloated industry tyrant.
