    How to preserve Edge Passwords prior to reformat and clean install?

    If you are not already using it to sign in to Windows, switch to a Microsoft account (tutorial).

    Final step is to check that sync is turned on in Edge (tutorial).

    That's it. All Edge favorites, stored passwords, reading list and so on will be synced to your Microsoft account, and as soon as you sign in to any other Windows 10 device or your old machine after clean install and turn on syncing in Windows Settings and Edge, everything will be there.
