    Favorites from Start Button

    In XP, and Win7 and all earlier iterations you could click the start button choose Favorites and then open a particular web page. I don't see that in Windows 10 Is it there and I missed it ?

    Thanks

    If you use IE or Edge frequently they will show up under "Most Used". Their frequently used list will be built so you can click on the ">" and a list of web pages will be available.

    Also, note that you can right click and pin a web site to the frequently used.

    Edge doesn't have a jump list.

    Pin to Start or Taskbar not available there; only Pin to Quick access (in File Explorer).

    [QUOTE=BruceR;1013063]Edge doesn't have a jump list.

    It's in the Jump List on the File Explorer folder icon.

    Pinning Favorites to Quick access for a File Explorer Jump list produces a folder of Favorites, but not a menu like Windows 7.

    @BruceR,

    Oops on the MRU list for Edge. Maybe another reason to stick with IE for a while.

    In the Start menu when you click on the ">" to get the MRU list for IE you can right click an item in the list and get a context menu to pin the item.
