Specs: windows 10 64
When I am surfing the web, I cannot get my favorites bar to pop up in windows 10. If I go into outlook my favorite bar brings up everything I have in it.

Are you talking about IE11 Favorites drop-down list? I have never seen favorites bar to pop up

Clarify for Post 2 -

First link applies to Microsoft Edge
Second link applies to IE11

Just trying to help simplifying the problem ...

Have to confess not being au-fait (familiar) with win-10... The two lnks I offered seemed to be discussing a similar problem circulating around the "favourites bar", hence my posting them

I did find similar that had seemingly the same info re' win-10 favourites bar etc...

Will watch across this to see what ails and how to phyxe?

In Windows 10 (Edge Browser) the favorites are accessed through the links disguised on the top right which includes your favorites, history, settings, etc. If this is a recent conversion from an earlier version of Windows and you used to use Internet Explorer then you may have to import the favorites from IE but it should have asked you about doing this when you first opened Edge.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If it's Edge browser I regard it as a "work in progress" and it has issues with the Favorites bar.

Here are a couple:
To rename anything in the Favorites Bar there is no longer a convenient right click option.

If the Favorites Bar is full then new items drop down on the right. Fine, but then there is no option to remove them.

I have developed convoluted workarounds but another way is to just make a shortcut to IE (iexplore.exe) in Program Files then invoke IE11 which works. Unfortunately, unlike Window 8.1, changes to Favorites in the new browser are not reflected in IE11 (or vice versa). The files are in quite different locations.

Unfortunately Firefox have recently wrecked their Bookmark arrangements too - apparently to mimic Chrome. Any good alternative browsers someone?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
