Sorting Favorites in Edge

Dear Computer Lady,

I just bought a new laptop and it has Windows 10 loaded. I feel like a newbie and don’t know how to do some of the most basic things I used to do in 7!

How do you automatically sort your favorites?

Thanks always, Barbara

Dear Barbara,

I am going to guess that you are using the new browser, Microsoft Edge on your new computer and that you used to use Internet Explorer on your old, Windows 7 computer.

Microsoft Edge is a fairly new application for Microsoft and from what I have read, they are still working on it to add features. I find that there are a lot of things that are lacking in Edge, so I usually use a different browser in Windows 10.

You can manually drag your favorites in Edge, just click the “Hub” icon to the right of the favorites icon (a star). In the Hub dialog box, click on the Favorties icon, then you can drag and drop in any order you desire. However, I have been unable to find a setting to automatically sort them.

Your Windows 10 computer still has Internet Explorer (IE). You can find it by clicking on the “Start” icon and then type “Internet Explorer” to search for it.

Once you have found and opened IE, you can save a link on your taskbar by right-clicking on the IE icon, then click “Pin To Taskbar” in the context menu.
