    IE reset

    If one were to apply this reset, would the bookmarks/passwords be restored with synch setting, or would one lose all of them?

    Hello Doug,

    Resetting IE11 will not affect your Favorites or passwords, but will reset all IE11 settings back to default.

    Change or reset Internet Explorer settings - Windows Help

    You're welcome. There used to be an option to include personal settings that would include your passwords, but deleting cookies can take care of that.

    There is also an option to export bookmarks like a backup. I do it with chrome. IE should be the same.
