Add to Favorites and Reading List in Microsoft Edge

The Favorites Button

This tutorial is only intended for users running the Microsoft Edge Web browser on Windows operating systems.

Microsoft Edge allows you to save links to Web pages as Favorites, making it easy to revisit these sites at a later time. They can be stored in subfolders, letting you organize your saved favorites just the way you want them. You can also store articles and other Web content in Edge's Reading list for future viewing purposes, even while you are offline.

This tutorial shows you how to quickly add to your Favorites or Reading list with just a couple of mouse clicks.

First, open your Edge browser. Navigate to the Web page which you want to add to your Favorites or Reading list. Next click on the 'star' button, located to the right of the browser's address bar. A popout window should now appear, containing two header buttons at the top.

The first, selected by default, is Favorites. Within this section you can edit the name that the current favorite will be stored under as well as the location. To store this particular favorite in a location other than those available in the drop-down menu provided (Favorites and Favorites Bar), select the Create New Folder link and enter the desired name when prompted. Once you are satisfied with the name and location, click on the Add button to create your new favorite.

The second section found in this popout window, Reading list, allows you to modify the current piece of content's name if you wish.

To save this item for offline viewing, click on the Add button.
