Another request for getting the favorites button back from classic Edge.
It was one of the things that made edge a lit better than chrome on a tablet.
- On a tablet I don't have screen-space to waste so a bar is out of the question
- On a tablet I can't expect to have a keyboard either so no keyboard shortcut can be used
Therefore the "old" button is needed. If the display of the button can be controlled through a setting it would please both the ones that wants and whose that don't like the button.
On a longer term I would like to see all of that toolbar - it makes Edge unique - nót just a Chrome clone.

Elliot, here in this thread is more, again, speaking to wanting things that are part of (current) Edge... its toolbar icons, and Favs handling that make it special & cause people to like it & use it. Set aside, Add notes, Favs et al, Share. AND ellipsis things opening as fly-out panels NOT, changing to another page. We are given to understand all this IS going to be in Edge C. Point is, it is easy to see, from threads likes this, the large number of Users who VERY much want these Edge things to continue to be Edge things. We keep reminding Folks we are in early stages. But, it is understandable they can be 'nervous' when they are not seeing these items that they feel are absolute parts of Edge. It must be given attention & respect that there is a liking, a preference for (current) Edge style & approaches to things. There are Edge Features, that concern people when they seem to left by the wayside. Stuff not even listed under "Coming soon", makes the concern understandable, also, in regard to this (same) bunch of stuff being mentioned & addressed, again, in yet another thread. Can improve the under the cover guts, but, having Folks without things they like, use & want is not/would not be an improvement the majority want.
Theses things may well be coming, still, the re-occurring similar comments & sentiments are not surprising (until they are seen). And it clearly shows MANY are VERY passionate about having what has come to be viewed as "Edge things"... not Edge without them... not the Edge people know, like & want to have consistency of Features & Functionality as we transition to a new version. As long as this is taken seriously by the Team, Folks should end up with an appealing, exciting product.

I fully agree.
Without those buttons - it's just a chrome lookalike
With them - A better browser that combines a rich pluggin store with the quality of the classic Edge Gui.
Right now I have two things that blocks a switch from classic edge.
* The favorites button
* The ability to block webpages (Youtube) from hijacking the right click menu. For this I have found a dirty workaround - sending IE agent string

There are a number of "Edge" things which, the Team has been hearing about (from Insiders) for quite a while. The message conveyed has been that it is all coming, though, may come piecemeal. And, it has been alleged that it will all be there by, actual, release time (non-beta). Obviously, there are heaps of people hoping this comes to pass. (Since we keep hearing the same (missing) things mentioned repeatedly. Reckon the Team surely must be hearing the same things (from us) and are acting on it. (We hope).

to be specific and clarify, the current Edge method is faster and a nicer method -- a better UX. It also makes sorting faster. Win-Win. But it requires that toolbar icon (#1 in the attached image ). Also, note that the "Favorites Bar" is a folder in Favorites and not expanded by default.

Thank you all for your feedback on favorites! We understand how personal favorites are and are trying to get the defaults right, while offering the customization that you are asking for. The latest change in this process is the addition of a more vertical favorites button that opens a fly-out. This change is only in Canary right now, but should make its way into this week's Developer channel update. The visibility of the button is controllable, so you can hide it if you don't want it cluttering up your browser's main interface.
We have also heard the feedback around the need to edit favorites offline, or push them out as part of an organizational change. If you can, we would love to know more about how you do this today. Do you use Active Directory to manage your organization, or just manually push out a series of favorites? How many levels would you need, and how would you want to see those level depicted? Would you expect that organizational favorites merge with personal favorites, or displayed in special folders? Would you expect them to be read only, or would a user have the ability to manage (edit, reorder, delete or add to) them?
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback, we really appreciate it and use it!
