'Launch taskbar pinning wizard' in Microsoft Edge!

Recommended Posts

I noticed that the new Edge (installed recently) includes a feature that reminds of the old Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Internet Explorer.

 

It is 'taskbar pinning wizard'.

It allows you to easily pin sites to your taskbar !

---It even suggests sites to pin !

Even so-called web apps can be pinned ! !

Use of 'wizard' suggests classic MS goodness; automated taskbar pinning is convenient !

Reminds of features such as 'Desktop Cleanup Wizard' of Windows XP.

Or 'Maintenance Wizard' of Windows 98.

Or classic 'Rules and Alerts' of older Office versions.

That'll be particularly handy for people who use PWAs.

Next they'll be bringing Active Desktop back... or not.

classic MS goodness.

 

even nomenclature is reminiscent of that era.

 

'favorites' and 'favorites bar' but not 'bookmarks' or 'bookmarks bar'.

 

someone at MS is still thinking properly.
