I'm a big fan of the shortcuts on the start page and as a consequence have reached the limit of 8.
I was kind of hoping this could be customized in the future to have for instance a 2nd row of 8 shortcuts. To prevent the page from looking overcrowded the shortcuts could be scaled down a bit when a 2nd row becomes active.
Especially on a big screen this shouldn't cause any issues.
Firefox has this ability but their NTP page is totally different. the way I see it, Microsoft can only add 1 more row (to have 2 rows in total), any more rows would require the user to scroll down which is not an option since scrolling down is already dedicated for seeing the news section.
Also, Edge on W10 should sync these with Edge on Android. Edge/Android is supposed to show the most visited sites but it does not. It arbitrarily pins sites that I have NEVER visited through this browser (LinkedIn. Netflix, etc.). On top of that, I do not want to check these tiles every time I open the browser to see if the site I want is pinned or not. Under the most used scenario it could be there in the morning but not at night depending on my browsing that particular day , Here today, gone tomorrow! Let me choose the pinned tiles myself.@Iengelen
I definitely would like to see a second row. I remember sending them feedback regarding this a few months ago and then I recently got an email saying that they had implemented it, but I have yet to see anything like it in Canary. :\
