  2. edge sync

    Hello,

    Syncing your Microsoft Edge favorites, reading list, and other data between Windows 10 devices including Windows Phone is by signing in with the same Microsoft account on each device. If this isn't syncing, make sure that the
    Sync settings on your Windows 10 device is turned on as well as in the Microsoft Edge PC and mobile.

    To turn on syncing in Windows Settings on your PC:


    • Select the Start button and select Settings.

    • Select Accounts > Sync your settings and turn on
      Sync settings.

    To turn on syncing in Microsoft Edge on your PC:


    • Select More > Settings.

    • Turn on Sync.

    On your Windows 10 Mobile, launch Microsoft Edge, then go to Settings, and scroll down and tap the
    Sync your content switch to On.

    Then, you may need to restart Edge on one or both devices/machines to force the syncing process.

    Update us with the outcome.

    How to preserve Edge Passwords prior to reformat and clean install?

    If you are not already using it to sign in to Windows, switch to a Microsoft account (tutorial).

    Final step is to check that sync is turned on in Edge (tutorial).

    That's it. All Edge favorites, stored passwords, reading list and so on will be synced to your Microsoft account, and as soon as you sign in to any other Windows 10 device or your old machine after clean install and turn on syncing in Windows Settings and Edge, everything will be there.

    Microsoft Edge Favorites Sync Unable to be turned on


    Okay, I did not see a thread for this so please do not ban me if there is one:

    I am having a problem with Microsoft Edge. I am trying to turn on the Sync Your Content setting in Windows 10 Pro to sync my favorites and reading list.
    The problem is that it has that red script below it saying "To Sync, turn on Windows syncing in Settings"
    I have already clicked on the settings shortcut below that and gone to the settings and everything is turned on in the Sync settings. I have nothing turned off there.

    I have tried going to the registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SettingSync\Groups and everything is turned on there as far as I can tell.

    Does anyone have a fix for this issue? This is my second computer so I would not be too flussed if I never got this fixed but just in case the issue appears on the computer of one of my relatives/friends I would like to know how to fix it.
