Windows 10: Favorites

  1.    17 Aug 2015 #1


    Where can I find Favorites on my C-drive.
    In windows 7 it was in Users folder. Reason I am asking is that before installing windows 10, I had saved my favorites as a WinRAR file.
    I would like to extract that file so my old favorites show in the browser.
    How do I go about this? Thank you

    I had looked there before but I looked again after your response. All my old Favorites were there now (not there when I had checked before).

    For the next step; how do I get the old Favorites to show when in the browser?
    The only ones showing there now are one I have created since installing Windows 10.

    Have you tried the "Import Favorites" command under Favorites in Edge? Another possibility is to see if your Favorites show up in Internet Explorer. If so, maybe you can Export them from IE to Edge. Back when I first installed Win 10 (October 2014 as a tester), my Favorites from Firefox were automatically exported to IE. And then when Edge came along, they were automatically exported from IE to Edge.

    As far as I know I do not have IE anymore. I do know they were showing in IE before transitioning to Windows 10.

    "I do know they were showing in IE before transitioning to Windows 10."

    If so, then they should be in IE when you find it and either exportable to Edge from IE or importable from Edge. I would try importable from Edge first. Paul's instructions are correct about where to find IE.
