The favourites bar is Microsoft’s version of the Bookmarks bar you may use in Chrome. In the transition to Edge for Chromium, Microsoft has carried Favorites along. Users will be able to manage their favourite sites easily with Microsoft’s Favourites bar.
Not everyone’s cool with the visual clutter of the Favourite s bar showing up on every web page by default. At the same time, not everyone wants to have to go digging for the favourites bar every time they want it. Microsoft’s Favourites Bar implementation — unlike Googe’s Bookmarks bar — offers options for users, you just need to know where to look.
How to manage the Favourites bar on Edge (Chromium)
- Open the Edge browser and select the overflow button (….).
- Navigate to the Favourites and hover over it to bring up the sub-menu.
- Scroll down to “Show Favourites bar” and click that.
- You’ll see three options, ‘Always’. ‘Never’. ‘Only on new tabs.”
- Chose whichever you’d like.
Microsoft’s new Edge browser is still currently being tested right now, but you can download it here for use on Windows 7/8/10 and macOS.
