    Favourites in IE11 and Edge 13.10586 showing entire contents of OneDrive

    I changed the location of my Favourites folder in properties to put it in my OneDrive, but somehow OneDrive has now become my favourites directory, so in both IE11 and Edge 13, my favourites list now shows the entire contents of my OneDrive. My OneDrive
    now contains the Favorites Bar directory, which normally sits inside Favorites (although with synching enabled in Edge 13, I have found that the Favorites Bar is not coming from this location, because if I add a new favourite, it doesn't appear here - although
    going into the Favorites tab in Edge shows my OneDrive contents, so it's borrowing some settings from IE11). Is there a way to restore my Favourites to the default location/separate this out from OneDrive? My reason for relocating into OneDrive was to allow
    syncing between devices with IE11, but since this is now an automatic feature in Edge 13 I don't think I need to do this.

    Windows 10...maybe later (not possible to relocate you user profile folder)


    You can relocate the folders within your C:\Users\YourUserName\ folder group instead - Documents, Music, Videos, Pictures, Searches, Favorites, Links.

    Windows 10 allows this and the relocations survive subsequent updates.
