    Syncing Edge favorites between computers


    I recently did a clean install of 10 on an older deskstop that I resuscitated. Is there a secret to syncing favorites/reading list between desktop and laptop? I know forever when I would add one to my phone it would show up on my laptop, and vice versa. I have sync enabled on all my devices, but favorites on Edge on my laptop have failed to materialize on my desktop after a week.

    :)

    Sync Favorites in Edge is not working

    Hi Clark,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community.

    I would suggest you to refer to the below Microsoft help article on how to sync favorites in Microsoft Edge.

    You can sync between devices, but not between IE and Edge.

    Let us know if you need further assistance and we’ll be more than happy to help you.

    Have a great day.

  3. Microsoft Edge Favorites Not Syncing

    OK. I've made some progress here. I had to uninstall edge and reinstall it as described at

    http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-reinstall-microsoft-edge-in-windows-10/
    .

    A few things that I had to do different...

    • I changed my standard user account to an admin account before I did this. I changed it back when done.
    • I uninstalled all extensions before I did this. I reinstalled them when done.
    • Step 6: I booted into safe mode before I did this so that I could delete the Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe folder.

    I did this to both computers. I then imported the favorites from IE11. After the computers synced then some favorites went away. I then deleted all favorites and them both Edge browsers sync between computers. I then reimported the favorites, added some
    to the favorites bar, including folders, and all has synced now.

    So far so good.

    Mike

    Sync Favorites in Edge is not working

    I noticed that Microsoft Edge Favorites and Reading List is not syncing (all computers are Win 10 1115 10586.36) between my computers ever since I rearranged my favorites using drag and drop within the Favorites UI within Edge. Note that there are no
    group policys set or any corporate accounts/logins on these computer.
