  1. Nesting favorites in Edge


    Hello everybody,

    I have been trying to figure out how to create folders and have favorites in them in the Edge browser. I have a ton of favorites that are organized by folder of what topic they deal with. My googlefu seems to point to an answer of no folders on the favorites bar, just an endless list of items. Knowing Microsoft the way I do this seems very unlikely, my take is that they love nesting.

    Any suggestions?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 updates clear history

    Hi,

    Yes, web browsing history, but also document history and if I have open tabs, they are closed and don't reappear after restart. I have been only using Edge for browsing.

    Also - and I believe it's related - any Favorites created since migrating to Edge are gone. Importing from previous browser (IE) only finds the Favorites created in IE. When I save a new website to Favorites, it shows in Edge, but NOT in my Favorites folder.
    When I searched for a particular saved web page on my C: drive, I found it deeply nested elsewhere than the Favorites folder. Example:

    C:\Users\Mark\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites

  3. Favorites list not transferred with Windows 10 1511 update

    I doubt this solves the problem, as I posted the same issue on another thread and no one can resolve so far. Favorites import from IE fine, but new favorites created in Edge vaporize. By that, I mean with each update, they disappear. I don't know why
    but have a clue: NONE of my Edge created favorites are actually in ANY favorites folder on my C:drive. They show up fine on the favorites bar and in other folders within Edge, but where are they on the drive?? This is clearly a bug in W10 or Edge, not user
    error or machine settings. Microsoft needs to get on this!

    Update: I figured out where the Favorites are being located by Edge/W10. Here is the path:

    C:\Users\Mark\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites

    "Appdata" was a hidden file, which is why I didn't see it using Win Explorer until I unhid hidden files. Why are Favorites nested this way?? Anyway, I copied the files and pasted them into the normal Favorites folder and they were still there after the
    latest update. However, I added a new Favorite and it does not seem to be in either location. I'll restart and see if it shows up.

    Update 2: Nope. Can't find the latest added Favorite on C: drive, though it is shown in Edge as a Favorite.

    Nesting favorites in Edge

    Microsoft Edge now lets you add new folders, drag and drop items from the favourites list and generally sort out the nesting to your hearts content. All this from the dropdown menu icon at the top right (the three horizontal lines).
