History sidebar items (visited webpages) DO NOT stay highlighted (Selected) after clicking (selecting item) and moving the mouse (cursor) away.

This has been stated since day 1 of edge being released. It is now 2023.

    Hi @Robert Stewart,

    It has something to do with the common feature of modern browsers. I can have items stay highlighted in IE, but Edge, Chrome and Firefox just do not highlight selected items. To request this feature in Edge, please send feedback to the Dev Team by pressing Alt+Shift+I. Hope we will have this feature return to Edge.
