In Edge, is it possible to add a new favorite (aka bookmark) by its URL without having to visit the URL?
The reason why you would want to do this is because a URL does not necessarily resolve to a page on the internet.
In Internet Explorer, this is as simple as adding a new internet shortcut to the
%USERPROFILE%\Favorites directory. The Edge browser seems to ignore the Favorites directory.
I'm not interested in answers that describe workarounds like importing bookmarks from IE.
