How to customize favorites in the Azure portal

The default Azure favorites menu is good, but what if you want to personalize it with your own preferred Azure resources?  In this blog post I’ll show you how to add or remove an Azure resource from the favorites menu.

Let’s start with adding a resource to your favorites menu.

Click ‘All Services’ in the Azure favorites menu.

Search for the service you want to favorite

Click the star next to the service you want to favorite

The service now appears on your favorites menu

Note:  The order of your favorites can also be changed by hovering over the service you want to move and dragging it to your preferred location in the list of favorites.

Now let’s remove a service from your list of favorites.

Click ‘All Services’ in the Azure favorites menu.

Search for the service you want to favorite.

Click the star next to the service you want to unfavorite (the star should be yellow).

Click the star. Once the star has been unchecked, the resource will no longer appear in the favorites menu.

This was a basic introduction to customizing your Azure experience.  There are several more ways you can customize the Azure portal to improve your experience and productivity.
