    It can if it's not deleted or replaced by the import.

    The best way is to create a system restore point to back it up with. When you do a system restore it'll replace the complete registry with what's in the restore point.

    System Restore Windows 10

    The .reg file in the tutorial below for the .bat option is 100% safe since it's to restore the default registry entries for it.

    I've run the Bat file. That did nothing as to clearing the Bookmarks out of Edge. Clicking on the Reset Microsoft Edge still only opens up Notepad. What am I doing wrong?

    Did you do this below first? It fixes the .bat file associations so it will run for you afterwards instead of opening in Notepad.

    Yipper! Signed out and signed back in but to no avail. I run the bat file but it does nothing to fix the Reset Microsoft Edge. It still opens up in the Notepad.

    In that case, you could just manually delete the DataStore folder from OPTION THREE below. This is what the .bat file deletes.

    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStor e

    Good. There is no Datastore folder here but there is one called Data & another called Indexed. Would either of these be what you might be referring to?

    Anyway Brink, I went ahead and deleted both the Data Folder and the Indexed Folder. Signing out and back in and the Bookmarks are still there. Weird and wonderful. Why don't we all have a moment of silence?

    That's not good.

    Are you sure that you are opening Microsoft Edge (dark blue E) and not Internet Explorer (light blue E with gold ring)?

    See if you may be able to do the tutorial below again.

    I'm quite sure (up to this point anyway) that I know the difference between IE & Edge. Hovering the mouse over the Edge icon identifies that. Is this because for instance, when I buy a new computer, I got into my account and my websites all come up on the (I'll call them tabs) along the top of the toolbar or whatever this is called.

    Yeah, I just needed to verify. Sorry.

    When you use a Microsoft account, your settings and such will automatically sync, so that's most like where they came from.

    Any luck on resetting Edge?
