    Having trouble importing Favorites into Microsoft Edge.


    Hi.
    I'm trying to import all my currentbookmarks from I.E. Explorer into ME.
    Google Chrome was the source of my initial bookmarks.

    Here are the steps I performed.
    1. Went to Google Chrome bookmarkmanager, exported a HTML file of my new bookmarks.
    2. Launched Internet Explorer 11.
    3. Manually deleted all my oldBookmarks in IE 11.
    4. Imported HTML file into IE 11,
    5. Launched Microsoft Edge.
    6. Imported Bookmarks from IE 11 into Microsoft Edge.


    When I examined my Bookmarks in ME, it appears many are missing.
    Basically, it looks to be an old version of Bookmarks from IE 11 that is being imported into ME.


    Any new websites I bookmarked in Chrome within the past 2 year are not showing in ME favorites.
    I rarely used Internet Explorer as my Browser, and only did a full import 2 years ago.
    I understand IE 11is not being supported by Microsoft. But how do we get the latestBookmarks into Microsoft Edge after and upgrade if IE is my only bridge.

    Does anybody have any ideas what could be happening?

    BTW: I tried to import from IE browser into ME browser, but that option has been disabled.

    Thanks.
    Tom.

    :)

  2. Trouble importing old pc favorites into Edge on new pc

    I have copied my old IE favorites into my Users account on my new pc (Windows 10), but when I try to import them into Edge, I get a message that says Done! then when I open Favorites, all that is there is two websites that I did not have in my favorites
    and do not want. Obviously, MS was paid to put these on everyone's pc's. Why won't Edge import these contacts when they are on my C drive?

    I never had any strange favorites.

    Try importing them into IE and then import from IE using Edge.

    In IE: File | Import & Export | Export To A File and export the favorites to the Desktop and from there, copy to CD or flash. Copy these to the Desktop on the other machine and import them into IE.

    In Edge click on the three lines at the top right and then Favorite Settings and import them from IE. Now you should have your favorites in both browsers.

    Hello Tom, *Smile

    Let's go ahead and use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to reset and clear all favorites from Microsoft Edge to start fresh. This will remove any possible corruption.

    Next, you could import your bookmarks in Chrome directly to Microsoft Edge.

    Hi Brink.
    I did the import from Chrome > I.E. > ME twice. And still I am missing half of my Bookmarks in ME.
    Maybe I need to re-install Win10.

    Tom.

    Having trouble importing Favorites into Microsoft Edge.

    Do you have the lasted build of Windows 10 installed?

    Brink.

    I have Version: 1511 Build: OS 10586.36.

    Someone else had a similar problem and stated in the MS forum that Chrome appears to be uninstalled in ME.
    So maybe I will try to uninstall/reinstall Chrome and see if it will then appear.

    Tom.

    Found a workaround.
    Since some of my Bookmarks do get transferred from Chrome > I.E > ME.
    I will append those missing Bookmarks in Chrome to the same tree that reaches the I.E. to ME import.

    Thanks for your help Brink.
