    Hey folks,

    Could anyone tell me how to get the favorites shortcut back on the edge browser? Having to tap multiple times is driving me bonkers. It was simple in 8.1 (with IE), but I cannot seem to figure it out in 10 with edge.

    Favorites is accessed via the "hamburger" menu on the upper right-hand side of the window.
    If you are looking for the Favorites Bar that sits across the top of the webpage, you can turn it on in Settings (... then Settings-> it's the first option).

    Thanks for replying!, what I was referring to was that in 8.1 I could replace the tabs button (bottom left corner icon in the browser) with the favorites one and then the tabs would be accessible through the hamburger menu instead. Is there no way to do this in edge? I'm not looking to see favorites bar at the top of the page, but rather 1 button press to pull up my favorites. Thanks in advance!

    But pressing the hamburger pulls up the favorites...and it's one click. Sorry I'm not following...
    Sounds like you had a trick that isn't in the new browser. That often happens on updates (or a replacement in this case), where data shows that feature isn't being used, so it doesn't make the cut in v1.0. Perhaps if you request the feature in the user page, they'll add it back in sooner than later.

    Rooks308 is highlighting an omission in the current windows 10 mobile browsing experience.
    In windows phone 8.1 you could change the tab icon in the lower left corner to a favorites shortcut. Very efficient when browsing around.
    Now I have to click ... Menu, then favorites..
