    Edge Favorites mixed up

    Hi, I have been using Windows 10 since the launch date, with not many problems.
    However, when I logged on today all my favorites in Microsoft Edge were in a different order, folders and individual websites were all jumbled up and it took me a while to find the ones I wanted.
    So I deleted the DataStore file, Edge Had no favorites, imported a saved one from a memory stick, favorites were back, all the folders in alphabetical order, followed by individual websites.
    However, 10 minutes later and they are all jumbled up again.
    Has anyone else had this happen, and does anyone know how to stop it happening?
    Many thanks.

    Hi, I reinstalled Edge as suggested, imported favourites from Internet Explorer and all was fine...for a few hours. Then, suddenly, they were all mixed up again and quite a lot of them were duplicated 2 or 3 times. Some of the folders were empty
    So, I spent the next half hour deleting the duplicates, and ones I no longer wished to keep. Dragged them all into a respectable order, and all was fine...for a while. Then, lo and behold, they were all mixed up again, along with duplicates, and even the ones I had deleted had come back. Think I may go over to Google Chrome.
