    Importing favorites from Internet Explorer to Edge misses many of them

    Imported my IE favorites into Edge, and Edge reported that it was successful.

    But now there appear to be two problems:

    1. I compare the Edge Favorites folder (...\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites) with the Internet Explorer Favorites folder, and find that 5 out of 89 folders are missing in Edge, and 34 of 65 Internet
    Shortcuts that were not in folders. If I open some of the folders in the Edge Favorites folder, I find that many of them are missing sub-folders and some of the Internet Shortcuts.

    2. When I click the Favorites icon in Edge, only about half of the favorites and favorite folders that made it into the Edge Favorites folder show up (yes, I scrolled down). I have the favorites sorted by name, and it only gets down to "H" for the favorites
    and "K" for the folders.

    What is the fix?

    Favorites folder connection lost

    Yesterday Edge was linked to my favorites folder and I could use them. After a session with Remote assist edge no longer displays my favorites. Checking my c/users/xxxx shows that I still have a favorite folder. how can I reconnect Edge to this folder?

    Edge will not show favorites

    Unfortunately, you have to drag them from the imported folder to the Favorites Bar manually.

    Probably a dumb question, but....
    Do you have Favorites set like this:

    You could drag the whole folder to the Bar and use it as a 'flyout'.
