    How to save MS Edge favorites to flash drive


    I recently made Edge my default browser due to multiple problems w/Firefox. I imported all my folders (favorites) from FF to Edge. Someone suggested that I back these folders up to a flash drive. I exported all of my FF folders to a flash drive some time ago which was easy b/c there was the import, export button on FF. However, I don't see that option in Edge. How do I back up my Edge folders to flash drive?

    Hello Fred, :)

    You have a couple of options from the tutorials below to backup and restore your favorites in Microsoft Edge. The first one using an .html file is the easiest way.

    Hi Brink
    New member here. ( old too 70 ) I am having the same issues with favorites Edge version 38.14393.1066.0

    Settings, updates, = system up to date today, I am assuming Edge is updated automatically with windows updates

    There is no export / import options apart form import from explorer. Since this is a new system and only ever had Windows 10, there are no explorer favorites to import

    Thanks Ray

    This feature is not available until build 14926 instead. You should be able to check for updates in Windows Update to update to the latest build if you like.
