  1. MS Edge Favorites


    With the Internet Explorer I have my favorites organized into folders. When I import them into the Edge and look at the favorites I see a whole bunch of folders with 0 items in them and I don't know why. Is there a setting somewhere that I am missing?

    :)

  2. All favourites gone since Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3150513)

    Let's try a different approach.

    Install firefox, run it, and import all favorites from MS Edge. if all favorites was imported to Firefox, import it back to MS edge. if not, I suggest you chat MS support.

    Edge Favorites missing after latest Win10 update, 12th November 2015

    It appears that every time that MS Edge is updated, the Favorites that might have started as a transfer from IE and is then updated within MS Edge is literally blown away... obliterated... Gone. Why is it that MS can't incorporate a save and restore within
    their updates to preserve the Favorites created and updated within Edge????????

    MS Edge Favorites

  5. Hello Brink,

    Your BAT file did not delete the favorites in my Microsoft Edge. The bat file was not blocked and I even tried running the dos command manually. I also could not find that directory on my system so I wonder where Edge is getting the information.

    What I did was open Edge and manually delete all the items in the favorites and then I imported the favorites from the Internet Explorer. That seems to have worked and everything is in the same order. Maybe the next version of Edge will allow you to sort your favorites.

    Thanks for pointing me in the correct direction.

  7. I was going to do the same with my laptop but for some reason MS Edge would not delete the favorites. When I clicked on the link I was shown the delete option but it did nothing. I am going to give your BAT file a try on the laptop, maybe it will work there.

    After I ran your bat file I was able to manually delete all the favorites in MS Edge. Then I imported and it imported all the folders included the contents except after the first 10 folder they were all empty. I tried that twice so I guess this a bug in the Import program.

    Any idea why Edge can't just use the same favorite folder as the Internet Explorer or at least make it easily available for editing?

    Yeah, it would be nice if Edge used the same Favorites folder as Internet Explorer, but I suppose it's best to have separate favorites for each browser instead.

    Manually editing Favorites in Edge is just about impossible.
