    Windows User profile migration - browser credentials- and favorites


    Moving a users documents etc. from an old PC to a new one is quite simple

    But how do you get about easily migrating browser favorites and credentials from mainly
    Edge, Chromium Edge, Chrome and Firefox? (we've ditched IE completely by now)
