    Edge lost favorites and home page


    Weird thing happened this morning. When I opened Edge, my home page had changed to the default, even though I deleted it in settings, to set the home page I prefer. And all my favorites were gone. The popup launched to ask me if I wanted to import favorites from IE. I did not clear cookies, temp internet files, nothing. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't have a good answer for you.
    What I am suggesting is probably a Band-Aid remedy at best............................
    Do a system restore. Pick a date when you did NOT have this problem as your restore point.
    System Restore Windows 10

    P.S. Why did you mark your thread as solved ? You fixed it ?

    I closed it as it seemed no one else had this problem happen to them, that's all.

    Ok. You can leave it open indefinitely as long as there is no solution.
    Does not matter if you are the only one with that problem. It is still an issue needs to be resolved.

    If you want, you can un-mark it.

    Is system restore any help at all ?

    I did not try system restore, since the Edge pop up asked me to import my favorites, right after I opened Edge and discovered that the favorites were no longer there. I had Edge import the favorites again, and so far they have remained. Really a strange thing. This has been the only issue with Win 10 I have had since upgrading.

    Thanks davidhk for your responses to this thread and issue.

    Ok. Then it is sorted eventually.

    Happy computing.
