    How to import favorites from Internet Explorer to Edge?

    Hi,



    I realize that you are facing the issue with the favorites in Edge browser, let me assist you.



    If you delete favorites in Internet Explorer, you cannot import the deleted favorites into Edge, but if there are any favorites in Internet Explorer, you can import them into Edge browser.



    For further information on how to import favorites to Edge, I suggest you to refer to the below article on
    Import favorites in Microsoft Edge.

    Missing Favorites

    Favorites have disappeared from Edge. The file structure (user\name\appdata....\Microsoft.microsoft edge_8we...\ac..\favorites) shows the favorite file is
    complete and present. However, I cannot
    import (with import function in Edge-always returns "couldn't import favorites") nor can I get favorites to display in Edge. I would appreciate any ideas on how to fix this. I think I have tried everything in the forum and on line, all to
    no avail.

    Mine did import favorites. I don't recall the process because it went fine. I only remember glitches.

  7. I'm having the same exact issue with my Windows 10 Pro on my home built desktop. I installed Windows 10 Home on my Samsung laptop and the favorites from Internet Explorer imported to Edge with no problems. So why did it work on my laptop but not my desktop? Every time I try I just get a message that says "couldn't import favorites". *Sad

    Where do you have your favorites stored on the machine that it didn't work on? In order to get the favorites to import, they have to be at the default location (C:\Users\UserName\Favorites).

    If they are located any other location, they won't import & moving the folder back doesn't exactly work either.

    You can try some of the suggestions from MS Answers:

  9. That's probably the issue. I have my program files on my C: dive which is only 250gb SSD drive. All of my data is stored on my 1tb D: drive including favorites. My laptop has only 1 hard drive. So moving the favorites folder to the correct location on my C: drive will not work? Thanks for the reply.

    EDIT: I went to that link in your reply and found a solution. The fix is copying the Favorites bookmarks to the Edge favorites folder and editing the registry file. It was a little tedious finding the Edge favorite folder. I now have all of my several hundred favorites in Edge. Only thing is the folders and single bookmarks are all listed alphabetically so they are mixed up together.
