    I told you. But no, you wouldn't believe me. LOL

    Glad you got them. Now back them up some place safe.

    This won't prevent you loosing them again, but it will put them some place safe. This is a line out of a batch file I regularly run to "backup" the favorites:

    XCopy "C:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\Use r\De fault\DataStore\*.*" "E:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\Use r\De fault\DataStore\*.*" /v/s/m/y

    You can modify the path to suit your system. The command does have to all be on one line. Heck put them on a flash drive if nothing else. Hope this offers some use.

    Didn't work., Ken. There was no option for importing favs...tried to get an image of the list but every time I click on Snipping Tool the list disappears and vice versa.
    in snipping tool, select delay (3 seconds will do) and then you have 3 sec to click on list, when snipping tool becomes active, list will stay

    I followed the tutorial RE importing Firefox Folders and when I clicked Import it said "all done", but I cannot find the folders. In fact, I had Edge set up with quite a few folders and today I can't even find them...had to get here by Googling "Ten Forums". Can you tell me where to find them? BTW, doesn't this forum send emails when there is a response to one's post?
    favorites folders are in "Favorites menu"... click on that star and select favorites (you have history and downloads there also).

    Click image for larger version.

    Great you got your folders.

    Thought I would comment on Notifications. Every so often I've noticed that I don't get a notification so as to not miss any I click on Settings (heading at the top of the tenforum page beside logout). Any thread you are active on that has had an update will be listed at the top of this page.

    I also notice that on some threads I get multiple notifications where you are only supposed to get one and no further notifications until you return to the thread.

    I identified this but we thought it might just be my mail system. Seems it is wider spread.
