    Can Microsoft document all limitations and known issues with syncing favorites between Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1?

    I'm spending an awful lot of time (see -- among other threads --
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie11-iewindows8_1/ie11-favorites-dont-sync-anymore-between-windows/6c04f698-fafd-4f94-bbde-43e1beb13658)
    getting favorites sync to work (again).

    Deleting "Favorites From My Windows 8 Phone
    seems to indicate that there are quite some limitations to that syncing scheme:

    1. deleting a favorite on a PC will not cause the corresponding favorite to be deleted on the phone

    2. adding a favorite on the phone will not cause the corresponding favorite to be added to the synced PCs

    I think the following can be added to the list:

    3. renaming a favorite on one PC doesn't rename it on other PCs

    4. moving a favorite to another folder doesn't move it on other PCs (to be confirmed)

    Are these expected limitations?

    Are there other limitations?

    Can someone from Microsoft please document what is supposed to work and what not?

    P.S. with Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile coming, what can we expect there?

  3. Internet Explorer 11 Synced Very Old Favorites ( 5 Yrs. ago items )

    Hi People,

    I were troubleshooting IE11 in my end user's PC. Issue is after resetting IE11, added Favorites bar.

    In that Favorites bar, IE11 synced very old Favorites that includes 5 yrs of favorites. Due to this more than 1000 of Favs mingled with recent ones.

    Please suggest me troubleshooting steps to follow.

    Thanks.

    For starters, have you tried a IE-11 Browser reset?

    Reset Internet Explorer settings

    • Close all Internet Explorer windows. ...
    • Select the Advanced tab, and then select Reset.
    • In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, select Reset.
    • When Internet Explorer finishes applying default settings, select Close, and then select OK.
