Klaus: Sorry, but I may be responding way
too late for this to be of use to you, but here goes:
I understand where you’re coming from, and
I have my own method for maintaining my favorites as a
navigable folder structure on my desktop—‘cause that’s
precisely where I want them and nowhere else if I can help it:
Say I find something with Chrome, and I
want it in my trusty old favorites structure. I hit alt-d to
go to the address bar. Control-c to copy. Now, I fire up my
little old, out-of-date Internet Explorer. Most of the times,
it will still open. I hit control-o to open. Paste in my URL;
hit enter. Again, more often than not, The website opens. I
don’t care if it opens sluggishly, as long as it opens. Now, I
use the same old IE command to add to favorites. There you go.
Yes, it’s cumbersome, but I just can’t get to feeling at home
in that Chrome favorites management deal. My default browser
is, for the time being, Google Chrome, and that’s how the URL
will open. It’s just that I have my comfortable structure with
logically organized links in folders, or in second-level
subfolders under first-level parent folders. It’s part of my
organizational file system, and it’s so established that I
just want to keep it that way, no matter how crazy it may
tried the approach via the favorites manager - still quite
It seems to me that longterm maintaining the IE favorites
file on the desktop is much more efficient:
I will still save the favorite in the Edge Browser with
Control + d
Additionally however - and this is certainly more work
1. Go with control + l and copy the web address of the page
2. Open the IE favorites on the desktop
3. create new shortcut with the application menue.
After this I have the convienience of handling all subsequent
accesses with keyboard searches etc from the desktop file.

I can't use first letter navigation in Favorites manager.
It's much faster to use the search feature to limit what
shows up in the right side pane.
It's very, very much like file explorer in layout, and if
you know what you're looking for a couple of characters in
the search box tends to really cut down on what's available
in the actual favorites list in the right pane.
