Microsoft Edge Favorites not in default folder but availalbe in Edge

Question: Microsoft Edge Favorites not in default folder but availalbe in Edge

Since installing the November Windows 10 update (11/17/15) none of my favorites are being stored in the default Edge folder. While in Edge the favorites are available but when I go to the default folder they are not listed. Is there another location they may be being saved or has my default location somehow been changed? My AppData folder shows a creation date of 11/17/15 with no modifications being made in favorites since that date.

Hi!

I've been using Windows 10 for about 2 months now and do like the feel of it.

Now, I have a problem with the Edge browser not saving a website I try to favorite in a new folder under Favorites.

When favoriting a website to Favorites or Favorite Toolbar, is saves the website as the star becomes yellow. But, if I make a new folder under Favorites and try to save to it, no luck. The star does not change to yellow nor does it favorite it under the new folder created.

Additionally, when I try to remove the folder created under Favorites, right clicking gives me the "remove" option but when I select it, nothing happens.

This is driving me nuts. Does anyone know a solution to this?

Answer:Microsoft Edge is not saving favorites under new folder created

Hi,
Go to Task manager, right click Edge Process, click Details, right click Microsoft Edge CP.exe and End task, repeat this for all instances of Microsoft Edge.exe. Reboot and see whether it fixes the problem.

I have lost all my Favorites in Edge. I have recovered a copy of the desired Favorites and have placed these favorites on my desktop as a file folder. The file structure has all the folders, and within each folder, the links to all the favorite websites. I have tried placing the contents of this file into the following location: C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\De fault
I understand that this is the default location for Edge Favorites. With the desired ?Favorites? folder placed and verified in the above location and I open Edge and click on Favorites and all I see under Favorites are two folders ?Favorites Bar? and ?BookmarksBar?

The only way I know how is to place them in Favorites folder using File Explorer. That's actually for IE. Then import them using Edge.

I've just updated Windows 10 to the latest major update (1511). When it finished, it had re-imported some of my old favorites (from IE) into Edge.

My favorites are now in a bit of a mess and I need to do a fairly big cleanup.

I find the standard Microsoft solution for managing (from the hub) to be a huge PITA.

Does anybody know of a more user friendly way to manage them (can't even order alphabetically). Would there even be an app that can be used for this purpose?

Today I started trying Microsoft Edge for the first time and noticed that I can't find my list of favorites which I have on Internet Explorer. In WP8/8.1 the list used to show up after I hard reset my phone, so I am wondering if Microsoft Edge has its own list of synchronized favorites, or if I have messed up with my WM10 where the browser couldn't synchronize to my account.

Answer:Are favorites carried over to Microsoft Edge?

For me, they are all in the "Phone" folder of the favorites.

I'm new to Edge, and would love to find where in Windows Explorer it keeps the folder storing Favorites links. However, all I've found so far in searching the Internet in general and TenForums in particular, are W10 Favorites folders which are either empty or contain only icons.

Assuming Microsoft has not encrypted all of Edge's Favorites and moved them to a hidden location as of today (3/13/2017), would someone please direct me to the latest help on this topic, or tell me how a new user should do this?

Answer:Where does Windows 10 Edge keep its Favorites folder items?

Hi RetiredEngineer

From what I found searching web and adding a favorite or two.

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User \Default\Datastore\Data

From there you keep drilling. You were likely very close as I found a folder with Icons. They are kept in database call spartan.edb

Search this file and you get lots of hits.

My DB was updated with exact time that I added my last favorite.

Is there some in-app feature that allows for quick organization of favorites?

Answer:How do you bulk manage Microsoft Edge favorites?

In Edge, click on the three horizontal lines icon at the top, towards the right to open the Hub. Click on the star in the Hub to see your favorites. Here you can right-click to create folders and click-and-drag your bookmarks to rearrange them or move them into folders.

If you have the Favorites Bar turned on in Edge's Settings, it works best if you only create one level of folders within the Favorites Bar. You can create more sub-folders, but only the first level will show as a drop down list from the Favourites Bar. Going deeper will open the Hub to display your bookmarks.

Hi.
I'm trying to import all my currentbookmarks from I.E. Explorer into ME.
Google Chrome was the source of my initial bookmarks.

Here are the steps I performed.
1. Went to Google Chrome bookmarkmanager, exported a HTML file of my new bookmarks.
2. Launched Internet Explorer 11.
3. Manually deleted all my oldBookmarks in IE 11.
4. Imported HTML file into IE 11,
5. Launched Microsoft Edge.
6. Imported Bookmarks from IE 11 into Microsoft Edge.
When I examined my Bookmarks in ME, it appears many are missing.
Basically, it looks to be an old version of Bookmarks from IE 11 that is being imported into ME.
Any new websites I bookmarked in Chrome within the past 2 year are not showing in ME favorites.
I rarely used Internet Explorer as my Browser, and only did a full import 2 years ago.
I understand IE 11is not being supported by Microsoft. But how do we get the latestBookmarks into Microsoft Edge after and upgrade if IE is my only bridge.

Does anybody have any ideas what could be happening?

BTW: I tried to import from IE browser into ME browser, but that option has been disabled.

Thanks.
Tom.

I haven't found a way to do this in Edge, but I did find a work around. I don't know why they've made things so hard! What I did is open Internet Explorer (you may have to search for it, but it's still on Windows 10), navigate to the address you want to favorite, add the site to your favorites in IE, go into the IE favorites and right-click on the one you want to change the URL for, choose properties, then edit the URL and save or apply. Next you'll just import the favorites again in Edge and it should pop up. Hope this helps!

I upgraded to Windows 10 and imported my Favorites from IE 11 without any problems. I was able to open any of my folders in my Favorites for the 1st week. Two days ago whenever I clicked on any of my Folders in Favorites not only wouldn't it open but EDGE kicked me back out to my start page. The weird part is I can open any individual link in Favorites without any problem. In addition to not being able to open any folder, I cannot add any link to my Favorites. I read the Tutorial on How To Add or Remove Edge Favorites in Windows 10. What I see when trying to add a website, the CREATE IN block does not allow me to type anything in it. It won't let me Add a New Folder either. EDGE kicks me back out to my start page again. Any suggestions to both of these problems?

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.

Hello,

My problem has 3 parts I feel all are related.

1. My favorites bar is visible and I get one successful use of it. I can select a saved address and go to that location via the browser then the address bar is still visible but I cannot open or use it. However, I can access favorites via the side panel setting hub.

2. I get the malfunction or browser error occasionally where a page goes blank and I must open another tab before returning to the blank page whereby it is then visible and available.

3. If I use the settings hub to access various features all seem to work for me except when I go into Advanced Settings then it is as if the menu is invisible, I see it but if I click or try to select or change anything the resulting action is taken from whatever is active or displaying on the webpage behind the hub advanced settings.

Microsoft Edge has always had some interesting anomalies on my system, including windows 8 and a different video card and monitor. My screen resolution is 1920 x 1280. Vizio HDTV hdmi M70-C3 series.

I am a windows 10 pro user x64. NVidia GeForce 740 all drivers are up to date. I have always reformatted and chosen to do a clean install of any new major OS revisions. My browser zoom is set to 100%.

Thanks, Droidly

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.

I currently have Firefox, IE and Edge installed on my PC. Firefox is set as the default browser. When I go into the default apps setting screen and click to change my default browser, only IE and Firefox are on the list, so I can't select Edge.

However, if I click the "Reset" button to reset all of the default apps, Edge becomes the default browser, but obviously that resets all of my other default apps too, which is a pain. As soon as I choose either IE or Firefox as my default browser, I am unable to select Edge again as it's not on the list, so all I can do is hit "Reset" again.

What's also strange is that if I right-click on a HTML file and choose "open with", Edge doesn't appear anywhere on that list either.

I've tried the system file checker, but it said that everything was fine. With Edge not being something that I can uninstall and reinstall, I don't know how I can go about fixing this.

Anyone got any ideas? Thanks.

This is really a MS EDGE question, but as there isn't a forum category for it (why on earth isn't there) I will ask it here in the IE 11 forum. Has anyone written a script, extension or plugin that will allow me to search through my extensive favorites collection? 
Is there an app that can accomplish this almost universal service in every other browser?  I try to use the browser native to the OS I'm using. I have looked in other MS support forums and not an answer to be found about this. Several iterations
of this very basic question have gone unanswered for almost 3 years.  Is MS
trying loose customers? Any suggestions?  Any idea about why there isn't a forum category for EDGE. When it launched, it looked as though MS was sincere about maintaining a net browser, but they also acted as though they were going to
make, sell and support mobile phones, but we all know what happened with that.  Any answer at all regarding these questions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
I've been looking for a solution for my problem for months now.
Since I have Windows 10 on my computer, the default pdf-reader is constantly changed back to Microsoft Edge, despite all my attempts to make Acrobat Reader DC my default one.
I have made the change of defaults many times and in many ways.
In "Settings" under "Default Apps" "Set defaults by app", "Choose default applications by protocol", "Choose default applications by file type", I've done it.
I've tried this, from an elevated command line prompt:

Code:
FTYPE pdffile=C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.exe "%1"
ASSOC .pdf=pdffile

and many more things, but alas..
Neither Adobe nor Microsof seem to be over-concerned by it.
Is there a solution for my problem?

Question: Edge Favorites MIA

Approximately half of my Microsoft Edge favorites are missing. I regularly do backups with Edge Manage, but my recent backups over the past week are missing bits and pieces of my overall favorites. I am currently going back and adding favorites from over a week ago by manually going to each site and re-adding to the appropriate category.

I found this out this morning after resetting Microsoft Edge (deleting the package and then re-registering through AppXPackage). Upon resetting, my favorites were nowhere to be found. I waited for a half hour to see if they would be picked up through Microsoft's sync feature, but it just continued with the message to import my favorites from another browser. After importing my backup from yesterday, I found many of my favorites were still missing.

Is there a way to prevent Microsoft Edge from losing favorites? This has happened to me a couple dozen times now.

Answer:Edge Favorites MIA

This won't prevent you loosing them again, but it will put them some place safe. This is a line out of a batch file I regularly run to "backup" the favorites:

XCopy "C:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\De fault\DataStore\*.*" "E:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\De fault\DataStore\*.*" /v/s/m/y

Question: Edge Favorites bar

So in IE I have all my Favorite bar icon's tile width set to short tiles. But I've been unable to figure out how to do this in Edge, is it possible to do this in Edge or no? So far I've found organizing favorites in Edge to be a huge pain.

Answer:Edge Favorites bar

I never used IE because it sucked but I don't see an issue with Edges favorites (bookmarks) Just like any browser its a icon on the top right and click it and theres your favorites and folders. And import from your browsers if you want to. But as far as what your asking. With edge what you see is what you get concerning bookmarks. Not really any customizing available. IE still exists in Windows 10 if you still wanna use it however.

Question: Edge Favorites

I too would like to access my W10 Edge Favorites list to edit them. But I find it incredible that no-one (including Microsoft) appears to know where they. I did come across one reply in the Windows 10 forum that listed them but not in the folders in the drop-down list in Edge and they were in code and not in plain English. Does anyone know where a list is located that gives the names in plain English and in their folders?

Question: MS Edge Favorites

With the Internet Explorer I have my favorites organized into folders. When I import them into the Edge and look at the favorites I see a whole bunch of folders with 0 items in them and I don't know why. Is there a setting somewhere that I am missing?

Answer:MS Edge Favorites

Hello Alkaufmann,

Your Microsoft Edge favorites may be corrupted.

As a test, use OPTION FOUR in the tutorial below to delete all favorites in Microsoft Edge.

Afterwards, import your favorites from Internet Explorer again to see if they are ok afterwards.

Question: Edge favorites

I've just been running through my list of Edge favourites and was surprised to see a new one, the Microsoft download page for making iso's. I am already aware that Bing insinuated itself into favorites, whatever next, adverts?

Question: Edge Favorites

In order to give Edge a fair trial I needed to get all my FFx Favorites into it, so I imported them and that worked fine but as I use more than one Win 10 system I also needed to be able then to sync Edge across all three systems. The MS way to do that is to use a Microsoft account on all systems, but as I use local accounts I chose to use my sync program, SyncBack Free, to accomplish this. The first requirement was to establish where Win 10 keeps the Edge Favorites, and Googling this gave me %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites. The problem is that this folder is empty, even though Edge displays all my Favs just fine So just where does Edge store favs after importing them from another browser?
 

Answer:Edge Favorites

Look over here.
%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\120712-0049\DBStore\

I have a desktop computer using Windows 10 software. Yesterday I switched from Explorer to Microsoft Edge for browsing, etc. My problem is that I am unable to add frequently visited sites to my favorites bar. I open the website, click on the star, click save in favorites bar, and click add. But nothing happens.

The same procedure works fine on our laptop but not on my Dell desktop. Can anyone please help?

For anyone who has not, already, figured it out... Have to hit the New Tab + FIRST, then grab the site from the Favorites Bar wanted (there).  Cannot hit the FB site first; that will replace whatever site, already, open; will not open to a New Tab Cheers,Drew

i stupidly used microsoft first-level support for this.

i have a windows 10 laptop and two windows 10 tablets. within the past week, i have factory reset both tablets. still, after a few days, neither tablet has the Edge favorites on the laptop synced to them. yes, the "sync favorites and reading list" box is checked in edge on all the devices.

this microsoft chat tech listened to my problem, repeatedly, then opened a remote support session. his first move, before i could stop him, was to open Edge settings on one tablet and click Import Favorites.

i explained to him in capital letters that those weren't edge favorites, they were old IE favorites, which were not the same as edge favorites, because they were IE favorites. not Edge favorites. i showed him the significant differences between the Edge favorites on my laptop and the garbage he had just imported into Edge on my tablet. he tried and failed to clear out the edge favorites on the tablet. while this was happening, i noticed that all the garbage IE favorites he just imported into Edge on tablet #1 had synced to Edge on tablet #2 (but not the laptop, luckily, which confirms that my initial non-syncing problem originates on the laptop).

i used the powershell on the tutorial on this site to reset Edge on both tablets. Edge favorites are empty for a few minutes, but the junk favorites keep coming back.

I backed up the clean DataStore folder folder on my laptop. I put that folder in the right s... Read more

I have done a lot of googling on this and it seems like no. The file that a lot of sites says has the favorites doesn't have anything, you have to rely on syncing your system, but the setting for syncing is greyed out because I am not using a Microsoft account or a work account. Is there anyway around this to either back up my favorites or turn syncing on, or must I abandon Edge?

I have seen several references to changing an entry in the registry to turn syncing on, but I don't know if they are current, and it seems risky.

Thanks

Hey gang,

I can't seem to figure this one out. When I set up Win 10 a few days ago, I imported my IE settings into Edge. All my favorites are there, and the ones I had pinned to my favorites bar are there. But I can not seem to figure out, how to add a favorite to the favorites bar in Edge?

I am sure I am probably missing something simple here, as it has been a while since I have done this even in IE.

Thanks for any tips,

Answer:How to add a favorite to favorites bar in Edge?

Click the star then the dropdown menu

In IE, deleted favorites ended up in the Recycle bin from where you could get rid of them for good. Now that I am using Edge I don't see the deleted favorites in the recycle bin. Where are they? Taking room in an unseen file?
Does anyone know?

Was this question too hard or too trivial that nobody bothered to answer?
