Earlier this week the feature to handle multiple profiles in Edge browser was added.

so now we have the option to right-click on any link and be able to open in on another profile.

but that option is missing when right-clicking on favorite items.

 

 

see it's here when right-clicking on any link on web pages

@HotCakeX Happy to help! To close the loop, that was the first time they'd gotten that feedback, and they're actively taking it into consideration. :)

Feels good to be the first x)
But yeah, it makes sense to offer the ability to open links to another profile, everywhere.

on a side note, I've seen people asking for a way to access the same favorite items on a 2nd profile, for them the only way to do that is to manually import/export favorites list.
with this implementation, they can just right-click and open the favorites on any profiles they want, so that's another plus :)
