In Edge, bookmarking your favorite websites for quick access in the future is straightforward. Microsoft Edge, similar to other browsers such as Firefox, Opera, or Chrome allows you to save the favorite pages for further access. Bookmarks are shortcuts to pages and URLs you visit regularly. The Favorites folder can be accessed from the Edge’s Hub menu. In Edge, you can also create custom folders and save the bookmarks in those folders.
This tutorial shows you how to create a folder, bookmark pages and access the “Favorites” bar.
1. Bookmarking a page
Go to the favorite URL or search for a website you want to bookmark. Navigate to a page and click the Star icon top-right of the Edge browser window. Name the bookmark and choose the folder where you want to save it.
2. Creating a new folder
You can also create a folder and name it according to your needs. Click “Create new folder”, name it, then click “Add” (see above). The Star icon should turn to yellow.
