Hey Madison!
By the way, I have a cousin with that name. I've been wondering how to arrange favorites by Date Added. Isn't there a way to do that in Microsoft Edge? The only parameter I've been able to find is "Sort By Name".

Well if Edge is like its predecessor, in the user folder, under the user's name, you have folders, and one is called "favorites".
Try going into that folder, don't select anything, and change the sort order of the folder's contents.

I'm searching in the folder: C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data, and I can't seem to find the "Favorites" folder. Am I searching in the wrong spot?

Hi, Annabelle. Personally, I don't believe favorites in Edge can be arranged this way any more, because the Edge favorites are stored in a data file, not as single favorites.

That is likely right, as I only boot to 10, using it as a host OS, so I am not as familiar with 10 as I am with 7.
And I mostly use FF over Edge.

It isn't, Edge stores its favorites in a proprietary file. To sort your favorites you have to use the favorites manager in Edge. To get there press control+shift+O, you'll get some dialog I've never been able to quite figure out, so immediately after pressing control+shift+O I always press 'B' to get to the first button in the dialog then click it, that will close the dialog and open a new tab with the favorites manager in it.

Browsing history does the same thing. There used to be a setting that would disable that dialog so you would go straight to the history or the favorites manager, but Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom got rid of it as far as I could determine.

Hi, Madison. Try the following,

1. Open Edge.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus O.
3. TAB once. When you tab, you should hear, Favorites heading level 1 Button
4. Press ENTER on that button.
5. Now press the Applications key, or if you don't have an Applications key, press SHIFT plus F10.
6. Arrow down to, Sort by name, and press ENTER.
7. Close Edge, and reopen it.
8. Your favorites should now be sorted in alphabetic order.

Hi Madison and others,

The Favorites folder that has resided in your user folder for many years only worked for storing and managing Internet Explorer favorites. It is now more or less an orphan with no particular reason for continuing to exist. The “favorites” in Edge are favorites in name only and behave more like bookmarks in Edge or Firefox.

Precisely to avoid the types of problems Madison is having, Chapter 7.7 of my book presents a universal approach for creating a single favorites folder on your computer so you don’t have to figure out how to access and manage them in different browsers.

David


 

On the Edge Favorites page, which you can get straight to by opening a new tab and pasting, edge://favorites/, into the address bar, there is a "More Options" button in the favorites list pane.  The first item if that button is activated is "Sort by name."

If you happened to change the favorite name such that a space or other character like an underscore that sorts before alphabetic characters comes first, then it will sort first at the top of the list.  I just verified this by putting a space ahead of the C in my Columbia Gas favorite, which made it sort before AAA when I activated the Sort by Name button.

First of all, how do folks get your book; and what is it called/?

While I have not read your book or chapter 7.7, I long ago gave up the
practice of storing links for a specific browser; rather, I create .htm
files of links which I can access from any browser I have on my pcs -- and
presumably your approach is something similar but probably a bit more
elegant than mine.
And, I suspect, it takes less effort than mine does for maintenance.

Oh! I won't need to, I already have it. Thanks!

Well if Edge is like its predecessor, in the user folder, under the
user's name, you have folders, and one is called "favorites".

Try going into that folder, don't select anything, and change the sort
order of the folder's contents.

Sorry Annabelle but I don’t know if this can be done as I don’t even
remember where I went to get them arranged alphabetically so
unfortenately I can’t go check and provide you with an answer but
hopefully another wonderful list member can help you out

Hey Madison!

By the way, I have a cousin with that name. I've been wondering how to
arrange favorites by Date Added. Isn't there a way to do that in
Microsoft Edge? The only parameter I've been able to find is "Sort By
Name".

Hi all,

All of my favouritess are in alphabetical order except for two; is
there any way that I can get these two to be in alphabetical order
like all of the other ones? . Using latest versions of Jaws, Edge
and Windows 11 21h2.
