    Has anyone else had this problem? In past versions of Spartan if I re-ordered Favorites, they'd be back in the same alphabetical order the next time I clicked on the folder+star icon. In this new version, Edge, when I drag a favorite to re-order them it disappears.

    I lost a whole folder of very important links doing this. I have them also on my Win8 partition and when I tried to copy these over to the Favorites folder in my user profile folder, they were there; but don't show up in the Favorites list in Edge.

    I suppose there's some important technical reason MS moved this from the Favorites folder in the Users folder to some hidden folder you have to hack down through AppData\Local...
