About Quick Links

Quick Links, on the right side of MyUW, are a customizable list of popular links and links to sites you’ve recently visited.

Recently Visited links

MyUW remembers the five most recently used links you have clicked from within MyUW, including from search results.

Add a Recently Visited link to Quick Links:

  1. Search for the info you want and open the page. The next time you return to MyUW, the page will appear in Recently Visited links.
  2. Hover over the link and click the plus (+) sign that appears.
  3. The link will be added to the Quick Links list.

Can I move my list of links from the legacy MyUW to the new MyUW? 

Our analysis of usage data showed that only 0.7% of active MyUW users added five or more bookmarks. This data convinced the MyUW team to put time into an easy-to-use Quick Links feature instead of migrating user’s custom bookmarks. We apologize for the inconvenience this creates for those who relied more heavily on the bookmarks feature.

If you have a large collection of bookmarks, consider saving your links in a Google or OneNote document, then add a link that goes from Quick Links to your collection. That way, you still have quick and easy access to all the resources you’ve saved, right in MyUW.

If you have collected a lot of bookmarks, the following links provide helpful information for managing your collection with your browser:

The MyUW team will continue to review the resources and links on the legacy MyUW, as well as feedback from users like yourself, and add additional highly used and requested links and resources to the new MyUW.
