CustomEdgeFavs helps you to extend the functionalities of Microsoft Edge by adding the bookmarklet features.
I've created two variants: the "Desktop" edition for Windows 10 PC and the "UWP" edition for Windows 10 Mobile.

They're quite similar, the only big difference is that Windows 10 Mobile needs an initial configuration to work.

UWP EDITION - INSTALLATION ON WINDOWS 10 MOBILE (DON'T USE ON DESKTOP)
1. Extract the zip file
2. Copy the files within your phone
3. From the File Manager on the phone, open the only appxbundle available and confirm
4. Wait some seconds: the app will appear within the app list

IMPORTANT TIPS AND ADVICES, READ CAREFULLY!!!
1. If you're having some permission problems while saving the lnk file, you can manually copy the lnk file by downloading the zip provided here.
2. You can install the appx on Windows 10 PC, but this will not work due to permission problems. Please use the Desktop Edition.
3. To allow Edge to recognize the changes, you've to remember the website where you've created the favourite. After the creation close and reopen Edge, navigate to that website, open and close the favouries (you can try to switch folder too) and then navigate to another website.
4. UWP edition doesn't require Interop-unlock to work.
5. You can't add or remove favourites from CustomEdgeFavs. You've to create or remove these directly from Edge and then edit with CustomEdgeFavs.
6. If you can't delete a bookmarklet, try to edit that again, then open Edge and try to delete before syncronizzation.
7. The favourites syncronizzation will work even with edited bookmarklets. Be careful as you can lose or damage your favourites.

LATEST VERSION + CHANGELOG
Desktop Edition - 1.0 16/01/2016
UWP Edition - 1.0 16/01/2016

p.s. Here's a tutorial in italian with some script tested and created by me http://www.windowsblogitalia.com/2016/01/microsoft-edge-customedgefavs/

now its done but i had to do a bit tweaking.

Hi, try these appx. There are dependencies that you may need to install to make this app working.
You'll find two appx within the zip file.

I think that you can install them from the file manager.
Using dependency it worked but as i suspected the shortcut link you have given did not work. So i went into packages ( i made a short cut from PC and copied it to phone. i think you should make a shortcut from the address of edge bookmarks folder on PC ) . After that went to edge folder , roaming state. Voila your app shows me " Success " :D

I'm already creating lnk files from desktop ;)
Which path did you use? In my phone, the correct path is c:\Data\usera\DefApps.Windows Phone\AppData\Local\Packages etc... (the one available within C.E.F.)
i went packages and the Microsoft edge folder.
I tried your other apps before, those were nice. Device diagnostic hub should have a page showing running apps ( not system apps ) like task manager- lite

If you can recover the complete path or the lnk file, I will add within the OP ;)

About Device Diagnostics HUB, I've merged the "apps" and the "processes" within the same list. I will add a filter within the next big update (I'm going to release a bugfix with some better translations soon, then I will release the 2.0 with a lot of new features). I've opened a dedicated forum for DDH here http://forum.xda-developers.com/win...-device-diagnostics-hub-performances-t3276664
p.s. diffidate from imitations XD

Hi. After a few days of excellent work in the program will stop displaying the websites. Re-jump and run is not helping. Is there a way how to fix it?

Mhm... this is the first time I see this problem.
Have you disabled some settings related to synchronization or you've done some updates from Windows Update? Try to reduce the numer/size of the favourites and their icons too

About the concept, unfortunately that's not possible, because it's possible to use only a picture and I can't add more options to the favourites list within Edge

Yes, perhaps there is any limit on the number of\a size. If you delete all the created tiles, the program again has earned (remove 1-2 tiles did not solve the problem). When the size of 70x70 pixels was created about 35 tiles.
About the update: the program has been installed on the build 14251. Then updated to 14257. The program works excellent, all created in the early build displays and new. Thank you
=======================================================================================
After 3 hours :Reduced the icons to 50x50 pixels. Created 19 tiles. Closed the program. Then again launched and again the sites ceased to appear.
