    My Microsoft Account won't sync anything, except favorites in Edge.


    Dear community,

    This problem began when I first installed the Fall Creator's Update (1709) last year. Since then, it's been nothing but sync issues. I created a new Microsoft Account, just to try and see what happens when I try to sync passwords, theme and other things. It worked once, then nothing more.

    This is getting really frustrating, because in Firefox, and Chrome, it works flawlessly. I'd prefer using Edge, as I don't like any third-party replacements/compliments for already existing software in an operating system.

    So, I am basically reaching out to anyone here, who experiences the same "sync bug" in the April 2018 Update of Windows 10, as that's the version I'm running right now.

    Lastly, the Microsoft Account troubleshooter doesn't work, either.

    :)

  2. 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
