    Backup and Restore Microsoft Edge Favorites in Windows 10  


    Hi Shawn,

    Thanks for your answer. Mine does too, i.e. imports html file.

    As I said, since 1803, Edge does not create an automatic daily backup in html file, but a backup of the favorites and settings. The issue is that this backup is not a replica of the
    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default folder and thus cannot be restored the way Option Three suggests (my preferred way of restoring favorites!).
    That is why I asked if you knew how to use this automatically created backup to restore Favorites.

    Hi Starcia,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    Sorry to know that the Favorites and Browser history got deleted on Microsoft Edge. I will certainly help you.

    Did you clear the Browser history prior to this issue?

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to restore the Favorites and check if it resolves the issue.

    1. Open File Explorer or press Windows logo + E
    keys.

    2. Navigate to C drive > Users >
    Select your User profile > Favorites.

    3. If you’re able to see the favorites list, then you will be able to import the Favorites from there.

    Step 2: Import Favorites from folder or from browser.


    1. Launch the Microsoft Edge browser.

    2. Click on Favorites and select Favorites settings.
