This tutorial is only intended for users running the Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10.

If you are a Microsoft Edge user who stores your most frequently visited websites in the browser's Favorites, then you probably access that interface quite often. A way to make those sites even more accessible is through the browser's Favorites bar, located below the address bar and hidden by default. This tutorial shows you how to display this toolbar, permanently if you so desire.


First, open your Edge browser. Click on the More actions menu, represented by three horizontally placed dots and located in the upper right-hand corner of the browser window. When the drop-down menu appears, select the option labeled Settings.

Edge's Settings interface should now be displayed. Locate the option labeled Show the favorites bar and click on its accompanying button once so that the indicator reads On. The Favorites bar should now be visible, located below Edge's address bar.
