    How do I clear ALL of my Imported Favourites from Edge?


    Hi,

    Recently updated to Windows 10 and found that Chrome now has a tendency to freeze so thought I'd give Edge a crack of the whip!

    I imported all my Favourites but now realise I have far too many collected over the years and half of them are obsolete! Rather than painstakingly pruning them, I want to wipe the whole lot (just from Edge) and then repopulate Favourites manually. I for the life of me find a simple way of doing this. Can someone please help me out with this?

    (Also, can you not simply drag and drop from the Address Bar into the Favourites Bar as you can on Chrome?)

    Thanks for reading!

    To delete favorites, hit + R to open a Run box, type

    Code:
    %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites
    and press <enter>

    Then delete everything in the favorites folder than opens in file explorer.

    I don't think so. As far as I know you have to click on the star button to right of the address. Edge is a bit unfinished when it comes to favorites at the moment.

    Thank you so very much! This has had me scratching my head for days now!

    Now they just need to make it so you can reorder them (ie. drag them from the dropdown to the main bar and it'll all be good!).

    Thanks again.

    All I do is open favourites bar right click and remove the ones I don't want that way you don't have to go through all of them again putting them back in
