Q:  is there a way to rearrange the "Quick Links"  in Microsoft Edge's "New tab" page?

Google Chrome allows me to drag to rearrange these shortcuts, and also to change the name and URL.   AFAICT MS Edge only allows me to rename or remove, and not rearrange.

 

Q:  is there a way to turn off the "Microsoft Rewards" icon  in the  upper right part of the MS Edge "New tab" page -  next to the gear icon?

 

--- TL;DR

 

I keep seeing people like Lunis recommend Microsoft Edge over Google Chrome.  Supposedly better integration with Dragon.

 

For that matter I really want the feature whereby Edge tabs appear in the Alt-Tab task switcher. I cannot tell you how many times I have said "DRACO swap tasks"  and then realized that I really should have swapped Chrome tabs and not  Windows  tasks.

 

But every time I start using Edge I get annoyed by things like the following:

 

AFAIK the Quick Links on Edge's "New Tab" Cannot easily be rearranged. They can be renamed, and removed, but they cannot be changed in order. Whereas in Chrome I can  change their name and their URL target, and rearrange the order. It sounds like a tiny little thing, but it was actually  the last straw that caused me to  give up on using MS Edge and switch back to using  Google Chrome. 

 

... I started off ranting about Microsoft's "My Feed",  but then found the Custom/"No Content" setting. Blessed quiet!

 

Now, does anybody know how to turn off the bloody Microsoft rewards medallion in the upper right next to the gear settings icon?.
