    Edge Favorites


    I don't usually use Edge, I like IE11; but I've had to dabble in Edge from time to time.

    I was wondering, where are the Favorites saved? I looked up & found an article that instructed to go to: C:\Users\<ME>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Def ault\Favorites, but on my machine, this folder is empty; even though I do have a few sites saved in Edge.

    IE is so much easier to find where the Favorites are stored: C:\Users\<ME>\Favorites.

    :)

    Favorites How do I find my favorites in Edge

    While browsing another thread, I found the answer to my previous question. Including it here in case others are searching for the location where favorites are stored.

    Kindly, follow the below steps to navigate the Microsoft EDGE browser’s favorites folder location.

    • Open Windows File Explorer and navigate to the following path:
    (Press Windows + E keys on the keyboard to open File Explorer).

    C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default


    Note: username represent the user account name which you have currently signed in to the Windows 10.

    • Here you will be able to locate the EDGE browser’s Favorites folder location.
    • Check whether you are able to locate the favorites which you have created in EDGE browser.
    Note: To back up your favorites in Edge browser, simply copy-paste this Favorites folder to a safe location. To restore favorites, copy and paste your Favorites folder back in the location suggested.
