    Edge - Location of Favourites shortcuts


    I think I may have to re-install Windows 10, but do not want to lose all the shortcuts to my Favourites, along with the directory structure. Where are these files located, in order that I may back-up ?

    There is no folder called AppData under my username - C:\Users\username\AppData.

    There is one at C:\Default.mitigated\AppData with a 'Local' sub-folder, but no 'Packages' sub-folder beneath that one.

    If you have an M$ account and are synchronised to the cloud they will be restored the first time you sign in after having reinstalled W10, as will all your settings and files, but not your apps.....the advantages of an M$ account.
