    How to delete favourites?


    My wife has saved countless ( hundreds ) of items that she viewed on craigslist, in favourites. I can delete them, one at a time, but would take me hours to do so. Is there a way to do this quicker? In the last few weeks, her computer is running very slowly, especially in outlook and Edge. I can't see anything in taskmaster to cause this, except for memory use at 60% or higher. It is an Intel 2.2 GHz with 4 GB memory and SSD HD. The memory is maxed out. Thanks for any responses.

    :)

    Windows 10 Calendar | Remove "Microsoft Account" default calendar

    Is there more information about this? I'm having the same issue, and it's driving me nuts(OCD alert)!

    Windows 10 Pro x64 Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.693)

    Mail and Calendar 17.7812.42257.0

    Microsoft People 10.1.3410.0

    Store 11610.1001.25.0

    Login to Windows using a 'Local Account', not a 'Microsoft Account'.

    Two accounts from an unrelated provider. One for e-mail using IMAP+SMPT, another for calendar/contacts using CalDav+CardDav (iCloud). I censored the second account name due to bad languageHow to delete favourites? :).

    And yet, when opening the Calendar. There is an entry for 'Microsoft Account Calendar', wich is unable to be managed.

    Things I've tried to fix this:

    - Removed and added accounts (Using both 'Calendar-->Manage Accounts' and 'Settings-->Accounts')

    - Removed and installed Mail/Calendar/People (Using PowerShell and Store)

    - Run Microsoft Troubleshooter for Windows Store

    - Run SFC /scannow

    - Run DISM /RestoreHealth

    - Switched to Microsoft Account, and back to local

    - A combination and multiplication of all the above!

    So far no fix is noticeable and the problem persist. Where does that 'Microsoft Account' entry comes from? And more important, how to remove it?!

    I would really appriciate if Microsoft gave some attention to this issue, and help us solve this.

    With kind regards,

    The first place I looked. They are not there. Favourites Bar and other Sub Folders are but not the multitudes I am looking for. In Edge they show up in the " Imported from IE Explorer" folder.

    @ddgm91, the Edge Favourites are stored in...
    Code: %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites[/quote] ...copy the above and paste it into File Explorer's address box. You may need to close Edge and restart it for any deletions to take effect.
