You can sort favorites alphabetically today in Edge. To do so, navigate to edge://favorites. Right click in the gray space to access the context menu and click on the "Sort by name". This performs a onetime sort of items in a folder. If a new item is added to the folder, it is placed at the bottom of the list. To have that item sorted into the list, perform the “Sort by name” action again.

 

We hear your feedback and have plans to make this option easier find within Edge and to add additional options. The Favorites team is always looking to listen to feedback and improve these experiences. Would you like to sort by name in favorites in other parts of Edge?  Are there other ways Edge can help you sort favorites?

This option has been available for a long time.

 

The problem I see is that it only orders the directory in which you are. If you have many directories, you have to go sorting one by one.

 

The management of favorites remains a topic that needs improvement. Currently my favorites are managed in the favorites folder of my documents. Internet Explorer 11 takes the favorites from this folder. Then I import the favorites to edge from Internet Explorer 11. And once imported, I have to go folder by folder ordering the favorites. It seems to me a method that goes around a lot.

 

On the other hand, bookmark synchronization still does not work properly. I duplicated the favorites with all their folders. Therefore, I have to repeat the steps from before on all my devices. Obviously, it is not the best solution.

 

I hope you will improve these characteristics over time.

 

Thank you!!!

Esta opcion esta disponible desde hace tiempo.

 

El problema que veo es que solo ordena el directorio en el que estas. Si tienes muchos directorios, tienes que ir ordenando uno a uno.

 

La gestion de los favoritos, sigue siendo un tema que hay que mejorar. Actualmente mis favoritos los gestiono en la carpeta favoritos de mis documentos. Internet Explorer 11 coge los favoritos de esta carpeta. Despues importo los favoritos a edge desde Internet Explorer 11. Y una vez importados, tengo que ir carpeta a carpeta ordenando los favoritos. Me parece un metodo que da muchas vueltas.

 

Por otro lado, la sincronizacion de favoritos sigue sin funcionar correctamente. Me duplica los favoritos con todas sus carpetas. Por tanto, tengo que repetir los pasos de antes en todos mis dispositivos. Obviamente, no es la mejor solucion.

 

Confio que con el tiempo mejorareis estas caracteristicas.

 

Gracias!!!

Hi,

I think it's better to add a small menu button at the top-right corner of the bookmark/favorite manager in Edge insider: edge://favorites/

 

just like that ellipsis menu button, put one in the favorites manager and add those right-click options to there so people can find them easier if right-clicking is hard to notice.

Maybe add the sort button to the context menus for the favourites bar and favourites menu, and even the folders inside of them. This would help with the discoverability issue a bit, and just make it more convenient to access.

Add the ability for us to choose custom Icon or Color for folders in the bookmarks/favorites.

 

It's sometimes hard to identify folders in the bookmarks just from their text because they look the same.

 

also add the option to set all favorites to "Icon only" at the same time. right now I have to right-click on each of them one by one and select "show icon only", this is really time consuming..

I would like to see the "Sort by Name" option via right-click just like in the Classic Edge version please.  Much easier than having to go "Manage Favorites".  Also would the "Add New Folder" button like in Classic Edge or have that as a right-click option as well.

Along with suggestions for changes, it is very helpful to us at Microsoft if you add a little bit about the scenario or task that you are trying to complete.  For example, saying something akin to: I have hundreds on favorites spread across several folders, some of which are specific to my work, others are more recreational.  I have difficulty managing all of these across profiles and browser windows, I tend to use WDAG at work and InPrivate sometimes at home.  I tend to have too many folders to make a context menu efficient, and I share them across computers, so solving the issue for one computer is not enough.  I also would love the ability to specify whether or not the favorites bar is showing can also be incorporated.  This gives us a lot more context, and helps us understand where the underlying problems lay.  We can then start trying to fix the problems that are shared across all Insiders, rather than the proposed solutions.  Thanks - Elliot

@Felux137 Thanks for the recommendation! Do you find that you like to sort items on the favorites bar often? 

@Rich Lusk Hey Rich, were you looking for right-click on a folder, an item, or both? 

@HotCakeX Would you prefer to set all icons as "show icon only" or to set multiple at a time? 

@Elliot Kirk 

 

It's the Right click in the gray space that makes this really difficult to find. Why only in the gray space?

I would like both. Being able to right-click to sort by name saves so much more time than having to go to Manage Favorites. One of the many reasons I like Classic Edge over chrome is that having a "Manage Favorites (Bookmarks)" is takes too much time and confuses most end users. The ability to right-click and get as many options as possible is much more intuitive and quicker.

Hi, thanks for the reply!

 

I want both options actually.

 

  1. I want to be able to set all of my favorites to Icons only right from the favorites toolbar.
  2. And since only in that page (edge://favorites/), we have the ability to select multiple favorites, add "show icon only" to the right-click menu. so we'll be able to highlight/select multiple favorites and then right-click on them and choose "show icon only".

 

Thank you :)

@candicepoon 

I tend to use a lot of folders on my favourites bar, so it would be useful to have the ability to sort them automatically like that (assuming folders take priority over loose items).

Beside sorting i would suggest to add "select all" option as well
It's already available. CTRL + A

@Elliot Kirk 

 

Hello, I'd like to be able to configure automatic and ongoing alpha sorting of my Favorites so that even as I add new Favorites or reorganize my Favorites the result is auto-sorted (subfolders first by alpha sort, then bookmarks by alpha sort).  I'd like that setting to roam with my profile, so as I use Edge on different devices the behavior is consistent.

 

I'd also like to suggest considering ways to provide a dynamically created favorites folder that perhaps is based off my Windows timeline (much like Office document history) or perhaps apply some AI algorithm to suggest items in my Favorites that I may be looking for based on the current site I'm browsing/search criteria.  One of the scenarios I struggle with the most is knowing that I've stored the site I'm looking for in my Favorites - but finding where it is, what I named it, etc... often leaves me finding the path I took to get to the site originally vs. quickly leveraging the Favorite.

@Elliot Kirk 

I use both the favorites bar and folder. I would like any bookmarks I add to the folder to be automatically sorted alphabetically. However, I do not want my favorites bar automatically sorted alphabetically because I arrange them in groups/importance instead of alphabetically.

Please add an option to let us add separator lines in the middle of favorites and preferably make it a colorful line so we can pick up custom colors.
so like I want to have the first 100 favorites of mine to be on the Tech category and the next 20 favorites be in the movies section and so on.
I know it can be done via folders but folders all look the same.
so either do that or please allow us choose custom color and picture for our folders in favorites so they will be easier to identify.
and lastly, let the favorites sync also sync these new details as well.

Thanks

@Elliot KirkMy favorites bar is still broken. In Canary, I can't change anything (including showing only the icon) without it resetting and going back to what it was before. It is a sync problem and used to crash edge 20 seconds after I opened it every time, but thankfully that's fixed. I've had to take a few day brake because of that issue and I hope its gone now, but my point is that you need to put more emphasis on the sync problem.

@Elliot Kirk 

For me it would be more useful to sort by date added. I appreciate this information may not exist. 

 

My usage is reviewing old favourites with a view to removing those that are no longer needed. 

Highlighting favourites that are now broken links would potentially also be useful.

Same here..so I just fresh installed Edge insider canary, hoping all my favorites were synced but then I realized all the changes I made to my favorites in the last 4-5 days (deleting, adding etc) were not synced. the browser wasn't giving me any errors and the sync icon was always solid green.

I find that I always want my favorites sorted alphabetically. I think it would be good to have an option that, as new favorites are added, they are sorted automatically. @Elliot Kirk 

@Elliot Kirk 

I would like to have the option to sort folders recursively. It is a pain to browse through each single folder and to sort each folder individually. I have a favorites collection with approx. 2,000 items in a hierarchical folder structure. Currently I use a Chrome extension (SuperSorter) but it does not correctly handle German umlauts and certain special characters. I would prefer to have that function as a native browser feature. Maybe you want to consider sorting options like in file explorer (enable / disable numerical order). Furthermore I want an option to exclude the favorites bar, where I prefer a manual order.

The problem right now is not only sorting the favirotes, but the way to get to a favirote(s) . For example if a user is importing their favirotes from Edge;they have to open that menu scroll to "a imported from Edge" open that sub-menu to get to their favorite. This causes half of the browser interface being taken up by the favirotes menu.

The old Edge menu was simple and easy to use.

@Elliot Kirk One option I need is to ensure that even if you sort by name, that all folders sort at the top. I don't want folder mixed in with individual items. I'm guessing there are people with different preferences, so it should definitely be an option (sort folders with items, sort folders to top, sort folders to bottom).

 

But over-all, the things I want and need from favorites and favorites bar are mostly there... drag-and-drop to re-organize, search for an item (I have literally a thousand items, some in folders, some folders nested, some at top level, etc.), and most importantly: when I"m on a page that's in my favorites anywhere, not only should the star light up, but when I open the favorites list, it should be highlighted in that list. As an example: I have a folder with two dozen sites I check daily. I want to easily be able to open favorites and see exactly where I left off, so I can easily click the next. Obviously, I don't want the contents of that folder sorted. Sorting should be on-demand (not automatic), and should be by folder, or at the top level for everything.

 

@Elliot Kirk 

 

A sort by create time will be a nice option.

 

Now we can sort favorites from time order to alphabet order, but can`t get it back.

 

I use sprucemarks chrome extension to do that now, but I think we need this option integrated.

Exactly my thoughts!

@Elliot Kirk 

Just make Favorites work like the old Edge.  What I miss most is the ability to stick my Favorites List to the side of the browser window and work with them like files in a folder.  I have a lot of favorites across a lot of folders - making the  new Edge expandable drop-down list very tedious to use.

@Elliot Kirk Can I suggest folders are displayed in the classic desktop folder color, as the flat color scheme adds unnecessary cognitive load on the user(moi :))

Hi,

They made the change in the latest Edge canary and dev channels :)

 

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Discussions/Dev-channel-update-to-80-0-361-5-is-live/td-p/107...

 

  • By request, favorites folders are now yellow.
Not really sure if this goes here, but I'd really love it if New Edge uses the same favorites pane system that Old Edge used. New Edge uses just one long dropdown list that looks ugly and is terrible for touchscreen devices. It also does not have a scrollbar, and is just one long scrolling list. Old Edge's favorites pane looked clean and was great for using on a touchscreen device.
I have a touchscreen laptop and I don't have any issues with the favourites/bookmarks manager (edge://favorites or chrome://bookmarks) and prefer it over Spartan's pane. Are you referring to the dropdown in the favorites/bookmarks bar that lets you see all other bookmarks that don't fit in the bar? If so, I wish that had a scrollbar too.
they are different to the file explorer icons, office, mdl2/fluent and to the onedrive icons. why couldn't they be consistent for once?!
What would that menu have?

I feel like Edge's favorite manager doesn't need one as it has a sidebar that allows for full text as opposed to buttons that show menus with the same text.
this doesn't have to do with sorting but i'm posting this here in hopes that other people see this: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/right-click-on-search-results-in-edge-favorites-t...
I'm talking about the favorites button, and the dropdown that shows when you press it. It's not as intuitive as the page system in Old Edge. Although, the full-page favorites page is nice. But not as quick as Edge's favorites pane.
ohhh. sorry. I disabled the favorites button so I just checked it out. I forgot about its existence.

Yeah, it's not like Edge's favorites pane. You can't even search from there.
I also like how in Old Edge, favorites management was no-nonsense. You didn't need to put favorites in a folder, as you could keep them at the root, and simplify things. I find it useless to have to put my favorites in the "Other favorites" folder if they don't belong in the Favorites bar. Why can't they just be at the root folder, like in Old Edge?
The same side bar from Edge classic would look nice for managing favorites

@Jason_Han 

Sort by creation time, name, domain name. Would be great.

Especially to group favorites from the same website.

Example: folder with links to videos, could be nice to group by domain (youtube, dailymotion, vimeo) 

not sorting related but I think it would be nice if there were an option to exclude root folders from being searched in the omnibox so bookmarks in a reading list (for example) wouldn't show up as suggestions in the omnibox.

I completely agree with @NoahW about the first part.

In an enterprise environment the IT-department often manage a list of favorites that are mandatory for all, and then the users can add their own favorites as well. Normally we would prefer all the corporate favorites on the top as they are the ones our uses need the most - we have ususally accomplished this by naming them with a "-" as the first character.
(An even better solution would be if the favorites had a "favorites managed by your organization" section and a "favorites managed by you" section.)

The problem is every time we add a new favorite it ends up in the bottom.

 

So we need a group policy to enable automatic ongoing alphanumeric sorting so that no matter how many new favorites are added, they are still in an alphanumeric order.
