    Organize imported favorites?


    I've imported "Favorites" from Internet Explorer 11 to Edge sometime ago, and now whenever I clean install W10, Edge "remembers" my Favorites. Great! Love that.

    Problem is there doesn't seem to be any organization to them and in a lot of instances I've got double folders and files. I might have a string of folder, than a string of pages all willy nilly with no order.

    That said, is there anyway to organize Favorites in Edge? This is where I miss IE11 *Mad

    :)

    Importing bookmarks and their folders

    I'm confused... I thought that exporting from FireFox into an HTML-based bookmarks file would contain all of the folders too.

    Can you post (just a few lines please!) of your exported bookmarks.html file for us to look at?

    Thanks. I figured it out. Just right click and sort by names fixes the organization problems. However, there's still the matter of triplicate folders. I now have to go through and manually delete over a hundred or so folders one at a time since all of them are triplicate. That's a real pain.

    Oh well.

    BTW does anyone know where the Favorites for Edge are kept? I know where they are for IE, but Edges seems to have them stored in a different place. Edit: found it...

    C:\Users\admin\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\De fault. However when I open the folder there's nothing there! *Confused
