  1. Edge lost favorites and home page

    Weird thing happened this morning. When I opened Edge, my home page had changed to the default, even though I deleted it in settings, to set the home page I prefer. And all my favorites were gone. The popup launched to ask me if I wanted to import favorites from IE. I did not clear cookies, temp internet files, nothing. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Edge favorites and favorites bar gone

    I gave up on Edge. Back to Firefox it is.

    first Edge lost all my favorites. I managed to get my favorites bar back, but not my favorites. The only advice Microsoft offered was about importing favorites from another browser, but they were no help when it comes to recovering favorites lost by Edge.

    next Edge stopped working altogether. The page opens for a second, then closes. It is not functional. Again, only advice to be found is advice that does not solve the problem.

    Next Cortana stopped working on my husbands computer. then Edge lost his favorites too.

    Enough already. I'm done.

  3. Windows 10 Edge Favorites

    A Microsoft Support Engineer has previously responded to a question posted by CharlesBrownSC. Please read the stated problem again carefully. We understand the steps how to pin favorites in Edge to a web page: e.g. Home page. When Edge is closed out
    and restarted, the process must be redone to have the favorites pinned to the web page. This is different from IE 11 and previous versions of IE in that whenever favorites are pinned to a web page and closing out IE, restarting IE, the favorites will be present.
    Please prove it to yourself by performing the steps necessary to pin favorites to a web page, close out Edge, restart Edge and observe that the favorites will not restart with Edge. If we are missing some steps to allow the favorites to appear when we start
    up Edge, please advise.

    I don't have a good answer for you.
    What I am suggesting is probably a Band-Aid remedy at best............................
    Do a system restore. Pick a date when you did NOT have this problem as your restore point.
    System Restore Windows 10

    P.S. Why did you mark your thread as solved ? You fixed it ?

  6. I closed it as it seemed no one else had this problem happen to them, that's all.

    Ok. You can leave it open indefinitely as long as there is no solution.
    Does not matter if you are the only one with that problem. It is still an issue needs to be resolved.

    If you want, you can un-mark it.

    Is system restore any help at all ?

    I did not try system restore, since the Edge pop up asked me to import my favorites, right after I opened Edge and discovered that the favorites were no longer there. I had Edge import the favorites again, and so far they have remained. Really a strange thing. This has been the only issue with Win 10 I have had since upgrading.

    Thanks davidhk for your responses to this thread and issue.
