Windows 10: Problems with imported Favourites in Edge

    Problems with imported Favourites in Edge

    Hello. I have two problems with the Edge browser:

    First, I have imported my favourites from Google Chrome but not all of them have transferred. I have looked in the folder
    %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorite s and they are all there, it's just they don't all appear in Edge. How can I get them all to appear?

    Second, I have too many folders in my Favourites bar for them all to appear on the screen so Edge has put a down arrow at the far right of the bar. When I click on this the remaining folders appear. However, when I click on one of these remaining folders, Edge shuts down. There is a way to avoid this shut-down and that is to first to click on any of the folders in the visible Favourites bar. Once I have done that, I can click on one of the off-screen folders and it opens in the usual way. Weird or what! Is there a way to rectify this?

    Grateful for any help.

    Hello again. I have managed to find the answer to my first problem by further research on this forum. I know, I should have looked harder before! However, I still can't find an answer to my second point, so any advice would be appreciated.

Has anyone managed to drag and drop the Favourites into the Favourites Bar? It will only work if you import Favourites from IE it seems. :(
