Import Favorites Into Microsoft Edge

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017 by | Filed Under: File & Disk Management, Using The Internet, Windows 10

If you’re trying out the Microsoft Edge browser, you’ll want to know how to import all of your bookmarks and favorites from other browsers. We’ll start by opening Edge and then click on the three-dot menu icon on the upper-right side. Choose Settings from the drop-down menu.


Scroll down to  Favorites and choose View favorites settings.



Go to Import Favorites and select the browser or browsers you want to import your bookmarks or favorites from.

When the favorites have been imported, you’ll get an All done message.


To view your favorites, click the Hub icon at the top of the page.


Then click the star to see your Favorites. The imported favorites or bookmarks will be in a file called Imported from with the name of the browser.

    It is a stupid way to import Favorites. I struggled with this when my wife got a new computer and we tried to duplicate Favorites on Edge from IE. Wouldn’t work. Why not make the “old” Favorites the “new” Favorites instead of hiding them in a sub-folder? Transferring Contacts is impossible from IE to Edge.
