  1. Getting my old Favourits back


    I've just had to do a re-install of Windows 10, but am really struggling to get all my old browser Favourites back. Any help would be really appreciated...

    I had on my previous install of Windows 10, all my Favourites in the Windows folder on a separate HDD. I still have those links and folders , but am struggling to work out how to male them appear in either Edge or Chrome. I assumed it would be as simple as telling Windows that the Favourites folder is on this separate HDD, and then they'd all magically appear!

    :)

    Favorites in Edge has disapeared on Windows 10

    Original title: Favourites in edge

    Hi there,

    I refreshed my windows 10 pc and selected the option to keep files. However, upon turning it on again my favourites I had in Edge have disappeared when I imported from internet explorer. I don't seem to have a back up of these, but I do have all the favourites
    on my Win 10 mobile in edge. At the moment I have turned sync off as I do not want old favourites syncing with my phone. can I get the favourites off the phone to restore on the PC?

    Thanks

    Is it possible to get my favourites back?

    This morning I switched on my computer only to find that my Windows 7 had disappeared and that I now had Windows10. I would like to get my favourites from 7. Is there any chance I can do that?

    And if you want to copy your favorites direct for Chrome, Chrome stores them here (have to enable hidden folders to see appdata):
    USER being your username on windows.

    C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

    Yeah, Edge doesn't allow you to pick the location for the import of IE favorites. However, there is a 3rd-party application called EdgeManage that does precisely that (plus a whole lot more!)... it will prompt you for the location (which can be on any device).

    Take a look, if you want, at: Manage Edge Favorites

  7. All sorted! Used EdgeManage to import my old favourites, then imported into Chrome.

    Thanks!
