How to Add a Website to Your Favorites List When you frequently access a website and don't want to enter its URL every time, add the website to your Favorites list. Open Microsoft Edge and go to the site you want to add to your Favorites list. Select the Star icon in the address bar. Alternatively, press Ctrl+D to create a new favorite, or go to Favorites > Add This Page to Favorites on the menu bar. Rename the favorite (if you want to), and choose a folder to save it in. Select Done. The website is added to your Favorites list. Display Favorites Under the Address Bar If you want easier access to your favorites, have favorites show up under the address bar. Open Microsoft Edge and select Settings and more (the three dots). Select Favorites. Select Show favorites bar, then choose Always or Only on New Tabs. You'll now see the Favorites bar below the address bar. Access Your Reading Lists Items Legacy Microsoft Edge offered a tool called Reading Lists, which allowed you to store articles and other web content for future viewing. The new Edge doesn't have this feature. However, after you upgrade, you can access your Reading List items in the Favorites folder. Open Microsoft Edge. Go to Settings and more (the three dots). Select Favorites > Other favorites > Reading list saves.
