The booksmark bar anywhere as useful as the booksmark bar in Chrome or IE. You can't edit it, only remove. Wish it was more like the ones in Chrome and IE!!! or am I missing something on how to use it???

(NT) Why use it? IE, Firefox, and Chrome still work w/10.

IE 11 comes with Windows 10 so you can use it rather than Edge.
I played around with Edge most of yesterday and last night and just don't understand or like it.
Will be loading Firefox and using it along with IE11.

You Can Edit It

You can edit it by clicking on the button with 3 horizontal lines, just to the right of the star button. Then click on the folder Favorites Bar. Find the favorite you want to edit, and right-click on it. There are several selections for editing.

Manually reverse order

EDGE doesn't put the bookmark folders at the top like most sensible browsers, it puts them at the bottom so you have to scroll all the way down to get to the folders.
The only way to edit this is to manually drag EVERY folder to the top.
I quit using EDGE and just use Chrome and IE 11.

I can figure out most anything, but...

But Edge has me stumped. I tried to import my bookmarks from Firefox but that is not an option in Edge -- they only give you the choice of importing from Chrome or IE. So I imported them from Firefox to IE just fine, and then imported my IE bookmarks to Edge. It seemed to be successful, BUT I CANNOT FIND THEM ANYWHERE, "Bookmarks Bar" or no.

It's too bad, really. Edge is an attractive, clean browser that seems to be startlingly quick, in fact quicker than anything else I've seen. But without my bookmarks (or "Favorites" or whatever you call them), Edge is useless.

Doesn't import what I want

It does not import the favorites bar (sites/icons) I have that go accross the top on Google Chrome. It only imports the additional ones I have (that aren't on the bar, but after the double arrow because of no more space). I want the ones I use the most, which are the ones on the bar!!!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
