What you need to know

  • Microsoft Edge Canary now lets you sort Collections by name, date created, and recently used.
  • Before this update, you could only sort items within Collections.
  • The new option appears to have rolled out with Edge Canary build 90.0.815.0.

If you use Microsoft Edge Canary to create Collections, you have a new option that makes it easier to keep track of things. A recent update to the Canary version of the browser brings the option to sort Collections by name, date created, and recently used. The new option appears to have rolled out with Edge Canary build 90.0.815.0, as highlighted by Reddit user Leopeva64-2.

Before this update, you could only sort items within a Collection. That's great for when you need to organize content kept within a single Collection, but it doesn't help when you have multiple Collections to keep track of. The new sorting options should make it much easier to organize Collections.

The Collections feature is quite popular among those that use it. The feature makes it easy to build up groups of different types of content that are easy to organize. The new sorting options are a small addition but a nice touch.

Microsoft Edge Canary seems to have a few hidden features that Microsoft is testing. Recently, the ability to resize the vertical tabs panel was spotted in Edge Canary. That feature has since made its way to Edge Dev as well.

  • I like Collections a lot but there is a lot of refinement still needed. So these changes are welcome.
