    Which web browser?

    With Chrome or Internet Explorer, files can be copied. With Edge, I've mainly used the sync feature.

    I can use either one. When I open Internet Explorer and click on the Favorite * tjhen they pull up. I can also
    do the same thing in Edge Browser.

    This is the same on my desktop.

    How do you get them to sync on both.

    To copy IE Favorites, browse to C:\Users\[YourUserName]\Favorites. copy or drag this folder to a USB Flash drive, Put Flash drive in other computer and drag or paste Favorites in the same location on the other computer overwriting the empty Favorites folder. Same for any other Documents, Pictures, Music etc
