    Attempt NOT to synchronize FAVORITES in Desktop and Tablet - FAILED

    Happy with Win-8.1
    , I kept my Favorites as the separate and INDEPENDENT choices in my desktop IE-11 (DELL Inspiron 660) and tablet IE-11 (ASUS VivoTab Smart), with the same MSoft account, and never had important favorites in the much less protected and carried all around tablet.

    Forced byMSoft into Win-10, I continue using IE-11 in the desktop, without problems, for all my previous desktop Favorites, but have many problems using IE-11 in the tablet (about which I will ask your help in another message).

    Learning to use Edge in the tablet I was terrified to see that the tablet Edge shows exactly the WHOLE list of my desktop IE Favorites. Following MSoft instructions (In Edge more settings Favorites settings synch your content OFF) I cancelled the FAVORITES synchronization in BOTH the desktop and the tablet.

    NO needed result. The tablet Edge continues to show ALL my IE desktop Favorites and to offer this list both for opening in the tablet the previously saved in the desktop WEB sites as well as for saving new WEB sites into this list.

    I would much appreciate your help in making my Favorites INDEPENDENT in the desktop and the tablet which are now both unfortunately under the Win-10 control.

    Many thanks for attention

    I Guess turning off synchronization wont help deleting the Favorites Already Synced to MS server.
    Disconnect your MS account from either one End (Desktop or Tablet)..
    EDIT favorites Manually in either of the devices.

    Now here's the little confusion.. I have only manages sync Settings like this..
    Understanding the New Sync Settings in Windows 10

    and I guess Microsoft Edge doesnt Control Sync Settings. .. or another Bug.
    Try turning Sync off from Settings Menu instead of MS edge

    As previous poster said, to turn off Internet Explorer syncing, go to Settings > Accounts > Sync Your Settings > And turn off 'Internet Explorer Settings'

    From Privacy Policy:

    Some Microsoft browser information that is saved on your device will be synced across other devices when you sign in with your Microsoft account. For instance, in Internet Explorer, this information includes your browsing history and favourites; and in Microsoft Edge, it includes your favourites and reading lists. As an example, if you sync your Microsoft Edge reading list across devices, copies of the content you choose to save to your reading list will be sent to each synced device for later viewing. You can disable syncing in Internet Explorer by going to Sync Settings in the Accounts section of Windows Settings (see Sync Settings). You can also disable syncing of Microsoft Edge browser information by turning off the sync option in Microsoft Edge Settings.
