Edge for Android "Gang aft agley"
A day or so back I noticed that my Mobile Favorites were all doubled, and in some cases tripled. It has been really, really hot out here in the Valley of the Sun, so I wasn't in the best of moods to begin with! Enough Said! I looked at Edge on mm Android Fire Tablet, and the Mobile Favorites there were fine. I then took a look at the Mobile Favorites folder on my laptop and saw that there too the Mobile Favorites had done the same thing. After walking away from it and thinking through a cup of coffee, (yea I learned my lesson). Using the Manage Favorites I opened up the Mobile Favorites on my laptop and deleted the entire Mobile Favorites Folder. Well that seems to have worked for now, but I know its going to sync back sooner or later. So has anyone had a similar problem or seen this? Edge "Gang aft agley:
Let me in
I can't figure out how to get into the Windows Community (this section here). I found it when I took a survey to get points and saved it to my favorites, so I could find out how to get back. Besides using favorites I can't get back in here.

Windows 10 - create a desktop icon? Help please 😀
When I used Windows 7 I could easily create an icon for my desktop. I do not seem to be able to do that now. Desktop icons are very helpful and speed up the connect process. My bot (computer) is an HP Combi and is currently operating in tablet mode. I have tried the process of using themes but was not successful. Any suggestions? Many thanks PS - I understand that Microsoft Edge doesn't allow desk-top shortcuts to be created. Have to revert several clicks to get to a website 🤔
Manage virtual desktop like a pro in Windows 10
Looking to divvy up daily projects to better focus on what you need to accomplish? Virtual desktop in Windows 10 to the rescue!
I'm sure some of you may have noticed, while others may have not, but you can no longer pin websites to the start screen, even by pinning it to your taskbar and dragging to your start screen, it can no longer be done. I've been aware of this, and have working around it, but after this last update....... ok, well we'll leave it at that... I was chatting with Microsoft Tech support this afternoon, and after I finally got them to try and pin a web site to their start screen, they admitted they couldn't do it either. Funny though they had a work around? So here's the work around, and it involve Google Chrome! Open the website you want to pin to your Windows 10 Start Screen in Google Chrome. Yea, you read that right! Once your website is open, click on the three dots located in the upper right hand corner. Scroll down until you sees More Tools. Hover over that and choose Create Shortcut... a pop up will appear where you name your shortcut, and here is where it gets important! You need to check the box that says Open as Window, then click create. Now go back to your start screen and under recently added apps you will see your recently added website. There is one last step. With it there you will not be able to move it around. So while it is in the Recently Added Apps right click and choose Pin to Start Menu. Voila! You're done, and your websites are now back on your start screen. Let's do hope that the boys and girls in Redmond fix this!

On two of my computers running Windows 10 2004, if I click the "Favorites" button (Star with 3 lines) in Edge there is an option to manage favorites. However, I just installed 2004 on my wife's computer and she does not have an option to manage favorites. I can't seem to find anywhere to enable this feature.
