Favorites Bar in Edge Missing

Dear Computer Lady,

My husband has a new HP computer with windows 10. He uses edge.

Sometimes when he opens it up his favorite bar is missing. No one knows how this happens and it takes a while for it to come back.

Do you know anything about this? Sue

Dear Sue,

While I can’t tell you what is happening to make the favorites bar disappear, I can tell you how to quickly turn it back on.

1. Open Microsoft Edge.

2. Click on the, “More” button in the upper-right corner of the window, and click on “Settings” in the drop-down menu.

3. In the settings, find the section named either “Favorites” or “Favorites Bar”. If you have a favorites section, click on the button that says, “View favorites settings”.

4. Click the button under, “Show the favorites bar” to turn it on and the favorites bar should instantly appear.

If the favorites bar is already turned on, try turning it off and then back on

I hope this helps keep your favorites bar in place.
