    Backing up favorites in edge


    Went to backup my favourites in edge earlier today and did a google on how to achieve it and an article came up from this site.
    Followed the info from the page that came up actually it's one that Brink has written.
    I opened file explorer and copied the ''
    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default''into
    the address bar pressed enter but nothing showed up in the file explorer screen,Also checked the settings in control panel of the section show or hide files and folders the box for show was already checked.Any help here please.Ooops the into should have slipped in when I did the quote.Sorry.

    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default
    Should have been as above.
    Many thanks.

    Hello menu,

    What build of Windows 10 do you have installed?

    For now, here's the tutorial for backing up favorites in Microsoft Edge to see if it may help.

    Double check to see if you may have your favorites in the old location below still.

    Code:
    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites

    Ok, I'll see you later.

    Do you have any favorites available in Microsoft Edge?

    As a test, add a favorite to see if the location in your first post shows up afterwards.

    Thanks I tried your last with no luck
    I don't know if I have the correct favourite settings,I checked my wife's laptop and its the same as my desktop.
    Regarding the Favourite bar on top I don't have the fav bar set to show its on the right hand side,I click on the fav star then select what I require from there.
    See screen shot.Possible that I have missed out in the settings.

    Many thanks Brink.

    Well thanks for that.
    Would it be possible for you to give me a rundown on how do you get to find your favourite folder.
    Could you Please give step by step on how you get to see the fa folder.Then we will see if I'm doing something wrong here.
    I would be much appreciated if you could.
    David.
