    Edge Update to Favorites


    Today I just had an update to Edge. Problem is, rather than some minor improvements it totally changed all my Favorites, and when I say changed I mean TOTALLY. It took away my Favorites bar and it seems to have totally reset EVERYTHING, forcing me to start all over again. Now, I never wanted this. As a matter of fact, I was happy with the system that I had and didn't in any way want to change it, let alone starting over again installing all my favorites. As a result I've had to do a system restore to an earlier date. So what do I do to avoid this happening again, and why does Microsoft feel the need to totally change the Favorites system that worked perfectly before?

    :)

    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.
