    I have an older PC with Windows 7 on it. I have collected "Favorites" over the years and have over 100 entries in my "Favorites". Is there any way to copy those the Windows 7 Pc into a Windows 10 PC?

    :)

    removal of favorites

    Hi,

    To assist you further, let me ask.


    • Are you referring to Microsoft Edge Browser/internet Explorer favorite?
    The favorite that you are referring is Edge or Internet Explorer browser, I would suggest to clear cookies and history or right-click on the list which you want to remove by selecting delete.

    Follow the steps on how to clear cookies.

    To view your browsing history, select Hub >
    History. To delete it, select Clear all history, choose the types of data or files that you want to remove from your PC, then select
    Clear.

    Note: applicable to Edge browser.

    For internet Explorer follow the steps below.


    • Open Internet Explorer, Click on the favorite menu.

    • Choose “Organize favorite”, click on favorite you wish to delete.

    • Click on delete which can found below.
    Get back to us with result and we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    • Open the site, click on add to favorites or reading list
    • Select the save location as Favorites bar
    • Then you will be able to see the sites in favorites bar


    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.
