    How far to you get when trying to browse for it in explorer

    remember that when you get to C:\Users\XXX then next one of AppData is a hidden folder so you need to be displaying hidden files

    What about manually going to the location instead of copying and pasting the link

    How far do you get before the folder is not available?

    Thanks but this is a reply I have had from the MS Community :-"Yes, this is a well-known problem, for which there currently isn't an answer.

    I'm sure the Edge development team at Microsoft is keenly aware that there is currently no practical way to manage favorites. It's not that they are not listening... they here you, but they are just a little slow.

    The current version of Edge doesn't store favorites in a folder structure at all... and instead store them in a database. So, that's why you can't find them."

    It would seem I will just have to wait until the MS Development team sort this on out!!
