    Microsoft Edge Favorites Not Syncing

    OK. I've made some progress here. I had to uninstall edge and reinstall it as described at

    http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-reinstall-microsoft-edge-in-windows-10/
    .

    A few things that I had to do different...

    • I changed my standard user account to an admin account before I did this. I changed it back when done.
    • I uninstalled all extensions before I did this. I reinstalled them when done.
    • Step 6: I booted into safe mode before I did this so that I could delete the Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe folder.

    I did this to both computers. I then imported the favorites from IE11. After the computers synced then some favorites went away. I then deleted all favorites and them both Edge browsers sync between computers. I then reimported the favorites, added some
    to the favorites bar, including folders, and all has synced now.

    So far so good.

    Mike
