    Got to be away for a bit here Brink, but a question. Signing out ... is that signing out of Microsoft? Also, what is unblocking the Zip file?

    I've managed to sign out of Windows 10 but that really takes me no where. I've tried opening your bat file but that only brings up Notepad and what you've written. I don't see Powershell anywhere. Waiting for further instructions!
    And oh yes, I would like to have the Bookmarks removed only from Edge but not IE if possible. Thanks!

    The link in step 3 below will show you how to unblock the .zip file. It basically allows you to run it without Windows blocking it.

    Using the steps below will reset Microsoft Edge and delete all of it's favorites.

    Unblocked it but still getting no further than it opening in Notepad. Extracted it and it puts the file into another directory under Users. Clicking on it there only does the same thing, bringing it up into Notepad.

    I'm going to call this a closed case. Obviously, this is not an easy fix. Thanks for the efforts Brink.

    That's ok. It sounds like your .bat file association is messed up, and associated to open with Notepad by mistake.

    You can download and merge the .reg file for the listed bat in the table of OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore the default association for .bat files.

    Afterwards, try running the .bat file again. :)

    Thanks for the persistent effort Brink. I'm away from my computer for a bit but will follow your directions when I get back. Thank you again for this!

    There is no way this is easy for me Brink. I'm on site you gave me, but what I'm to download from there is beyond me. It's way too confusing for an amateur like myself. I see one that might come close (in my mind) which is called Bat (Windows Batch File). Is this the one I download? And if so, will running that particular file in itself clear my Bookmarks from Edge (only) or do I have to run this Batch File then run the "Reset Microsoft Edge" after opening the Bat file? Am I confusing you? I know I am!

    No problem. You would just need to go to the OPTION TWO section in the tutorial below. In the steps in that option, you would click on the bat link in the table under the File Type or Protocol column.

    Brink, when one does a Registry backup and then uses that Backup, does what was put in the Registry remain there even after importing the Backup?
