  • Yep, and most bookmarklets are added to bookmarks bar/favorites through drag-and-drop, but that doesn't seem to be an option.

    In fact, even something as simple as dragging and dropping a hyperlink into the URL bar or the Tabs bar should open a link/open a new tab respectively, as happens on other browsers.

  • Peter Smith over at IT World found a work around to add a bookmarklet to Edge. It's actually more of a hack not for the faint of hearted. Here's the explanation:

    Personally I'm just going to wait some time for Microsoft to build in a normal way to add bookmarklets to Edge.

  • Should also add that dragging and dropping anything, from a link to a bookmarklet to a picture, is extremely laggy/low framerate.
