    Why isn’t there any favourites? In Microsoft Edge…?


    Colleagues and friends have been asking me where are my favourites form Internet Explorer 11 in Microsoft Edge. What a lot of people don't realise (i.e. the novice n00b is just being rude) Microsoft Edge is a completely new browser, it's not Internet Explorer 12 as some people are getting confused with. It is a completely new browser. More stable much better than Internet Explorer 11. So to answer any questions to any novice Windows 10 users, Microsoft Edge Favourites I have listed below a few simple steps. (important! You have to have favourites present in IE11) If your favourites are in IE11 then just import them from your previous browser to Microsoft Edge. Respectively you can do the same for Google Chrome as well. Although at the moment Firefox does not appear in the list...

    2. To the right you will see Import favourites
    3. By default Internet Explorer is ticked to be imported
    4. Import your favourites and then click on the Favourites Tab again and you will see your favourites from Internet Explorer


    If your Favourites do not appear just close and reopen Microsoft Edge and then click on Click image for larger version.

    Now all your Favourites from IE or Chrome have been imported into Microsoft Edge...

    Moreover, and most importantly is where is the path for the "Favourites Hub" Microsoft have done their best to hide the location of the favourites for Microsoft Edge. But because I'm working with computers for 7.5 hrs a day I thought the logical place to be would be in hidden away within AppData. If you want to edit your Favourites then the best way is to go directly to the file path location.

    WB + R to open Run Command and type in AppData or just copy and paste the link that I have provided below for you.

    I for one, and probably lots of others as well, would disagree with you on both points.

    Edge freezes for me on first use, and frequently afterward -- which makes it LESS stable than IE11.

    As to "better", it doesn't (yet) even have all the features of IE11 -- so I fail to see how it's better.

    Considering Edge is stable for most, your issue is likely your system stability more so than Edge stability.

    I tend to agree. For me Edge is very stable and posting here with it is great!

    Agree. While steadily improving it is not yet ready for prime time.

    Except ... Edge is the ONLY app that has stability issues -- and has been that way since it first arrived. All the other apps, work just fine.

    Edge is stable in build 10162.

    Things that i'm awaiting are flip ahead and back like in the old MUI IE 8.1, tab sync between devices, extensions and Ajax support so I can finally ditch Firefox on the pc. It's my go to browser for my Surface Pro 3 and phone though.

    Maybe that is your problem, Edge isn't an app.
