    Question about sync between devices

    I have three computers, desktop with W10 Home, two laptops with W10 Pro. Which of those devices would be the host when it comes to syncing with the other two? Does the OS being Home or Pro affect which one takes over as host?

    There was a time when I had sync set to yes on all three computers, the favorites from one of the laptops ended up being set on my desktop. This cleared the original favorites that were on the desktop, substituting those with the few that were on the laptop at that time. I had a copy of my favorites backup folder from IE, and was able to recover those favorites to my desktop. First thing after that I turned sync to off.

    Both laptops have far fewer favorites than the desktop which is my primary computer, I'd like to set sync to yes so all three are the same.

    I use Edge now and have saved the Edge favorites, but before turning sync back on I'd prefer to have the desktop be the host and laptops be the client. Is there any way to control which device is the host?

    TIA for all responses *Smile

    Windows 10: How to sync IE Favorites with Edge?

    Thanks Ramesh, but that does not answer my simple question: Is it possible to SYNC Internet Favorites between Edge Browse and Internet Explorer 11? It was not COPY and NOT move but simply SYNC between browsers on the same device.

    There is quite good information about sync in the help section of Nokia OviSuite.

    Nokia Ovi Suite > Help (on the top of the page).

    here are the some of it:

    About syncing
    Syncing means that you update content between different locations - for example, between your device and Nokia Ovi Suite.

    By syncing content, you can keep it up to date in your device, Nokia Ovi Suite, and your data management software (such as Microsoft Outlook). And, in case you would ever happen to lose your device, having content synced keeps it safe in Nokia Ovi Suite.

    For information about sync options for your device, see L:
    Modifying device sync options.

    For information about syncing different Nokia Ovi Suite contents, see the following:
