    Microsoft Edge Deleted My Favorites. Makes Me Sad.


    Hi,


    I'm an IT professional at a university. I oversee the service desk and the desktop support group. We are a Windows Shop and a ConfigMgr shop. We got a "Feature Update" slip by our Windows Update process and I got the "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1803" yesterday on 2/11. We avoid the Feature Updates because they have a high occurrence of FUBARing our operating systems. (We use task sequences to "upgrade" the operating system instead). In my case, all of my Edge Favorites have been deleted. Considering my back up is over a year old, a hell of a lot of research and documentation is down the drain. I've followed step to recover, to no avail. Any way I can get my recent favorites back? And can you write your code to avoid this in the future?

    Step 2: Import Favorites from folder or from browser.


    1. Launch the Microsoft Edge browser.
