How to Bookmark Your Favorite Pages in Edge Browser

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

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

  3. is there really no way to bookmark all open tabs in Edge?!?!?!?!?!

  4. Your opening statement is false. You state, “In Edge, bookmarking your favorite websites for quick access in the future is straightforward.” If this were so there would be no need for a tutorial on how to do it. In the early 1990s AOL Online had a web browser that was set up like no one else’s. Aggressive marketing made AOL this the first browser many would see, and once used to that browser format it became hard for users to relearn other formats. The other popular browsers at the time, explorer and netscape, were set up in an identical and intuitive fashion. Later browsers like Mozilla would follow this format. This was good for the consumer. This intuitive format has been replaced in all popular browsers in recent years. Each one has their own spin on how to use even basic features like bookmarking sites. To make the situation worse, random nonsensical icons have replaced actual words describing what a button’s function is, and any sort of intuitiveness has been eradicated in the attempt to lock customers into only one browser. While I appreciate your tutorial to attempt to right this wrong, you should be speaking out against this practice instead of enabling it.
