    Edge not synching favorites


    Edge was synching favorites nicely till recently - probably until the Fall Creators Update. Now it's stopped synching. I have 2 computers with the same windows login account and both set to synch in both windows and edge.

    I've tried an alternative dns server (8.8.8.8) which helped some people with the problem a year ago but it didn't fix it.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    :)

    Need to copy Edge favorites from one computer to another

    ...and that's why there is a 3rd-party utility that can export your favorites from Edge into Internet Explorer

    Need to copy Edge favorites from one computer to another

    But the problem is how to copy your Edge Favorites to the internet explorer. The first step was described wrongly. Once you have the favorites copied into your internet explorer or whatever browser, it's easy.

    I think the term "Synching" across your devices is misleading. MS may be able to sync, but stupidly enough, synching favorites is not done.

    Edge not synching favorites

    Well, after a week or so of not syncing, it's just come good.

    Either someone at Microsoft did something on a server somewhere to fix it, or else doing a BIOS update on my Dell xps13 9360 just nudged it into working properly.

    Anyway, all good now.
