      Craig, that should be done manually in the Edge browser. You need to login Edge with the same Microsoft account on the computer browser and rearrange the list.

  1. I removed a large number of Edge Favorites from my 3 Windows10 PCs. However even after reinstalling Edge in Android, all the old Favorites are still in its list and slowing it down. I cleared all data from Android Edge but then it re-synced all the unwanted old Favorites again, despite them not being in the Windows10 machines. To make it worse, it seems to be impossible to delete a lot of Favorites at the same time in the Android version.

  2. Apparently it’s not very easy at all because you need to read an article to figure it out. BTW Microsoft — get over yourself and call them bookmarks.

  3. Please explain how to rearrange them. That cannot be done !!
    There are no options vor that

  4. How can you bookmark all tabs at once?

    1. Editor

      Mike, unfortunately, that’s not possible. You need to manually bookmark individually.
