  1. Do IE 11 Favorites sync in Windows 10?


    I have just upgraded my laptop, tablet , and Desktop to Windows 10. I am using IE 11 until I can use Last Pass on Edge. Do Favorites sync across these devices? I can't find a clear answer to this question. In Windows 7 I synced them by putting them in OneDrive.

    :)

    Internet Explorer 11 syncing

    Read the title of the question and my previous posts. My problem is with Internet Explorer 11 favorites not syncing. Edge favorites are syncing fine (I imported them from IE 11), but I don't care to use Edge.

  3. How can I backup my IE favorites from my Windows 8.1 phone to my Favorites folder on OneDrive?

    I think the capability to sync IE favorites was added with the upgrade to IE 11 for phones that happened in the 8.1 update, so, yes, your new phone will need to be running Windows Phone 8.1.

  5. Thank you for your fast reply. I have done the above. I just leave the favorites in the user/favorites folder and win 10 will move them to the other devices? And keep them in sync?

    It won't actually move them, but sync (copy) them to the other devices. Sometimes it may take 24 hours to sync though.

  7. Nothing has happened yet, 12 hours. If I understand this correctly, my favorites in my User/Favorites folder on my other computer will change to reflect what I have done to my favorites on another computer? How can Microsoft get into my user folders to change them?

    Do IE 11 Favorites sync in Windows 10?

    If you are signed in to both computers with the same Microsoft account and both PCs are connected the Internet, they should automatically sync your settings (including IE11 Favorites).

    Are both PCs listed as trusted devices for your Microsoft account?

    If this hasn't happened within 24 hours, then it may be best to manually copy them over for now until sync decides to kick in.

  9. They are both trusted. 48 hours, nothing has happened. How can the sync occur when my favorites are in the User/Favorites folders on my C:/ drive and no one has access to them? Doesn't this need to happen on a Microsoft server and then what purpose would my Favorites folders be on my hard drives?

    A copy is kept online via your Microsoft account's OneDrive to sync with. You would still want to keep them in your Favorites folder since that is what Internet Explorer uses.

    I would go ahead and just manually copy them over for now until sync decides to kick in.

  11. Sync has never worked for me. No matter what I do, there is no syncing of favorites for IE 11.

    Odd. They sync for me all the time. I suppose you could back up your favorites to, and be able to manually import them for now.
