    How do I backup my Edge browsing history?

    I am preparing to reset my computer and wanted to backup my browsing history. Finding this info for Firefox & Chrome is no issue, but I've had no luck so far regarding Edge.

    Any idea where I could find some more information on doing this?

    Backup and Restore Microsoft Edge Favorites in Windows 10

    Are you signing in to Chrome or Firefox. So neat capabilities there in terms of syncing to new devices.

    Everywhere I've looked I can only find information on saving Edge Favorites & the Favorite bar. Does this process include history as well?

    FWIW - If it does you'd never know based on the description of the process.

    You can't as yet, only Favourites exported to an HTML file.

    You can import IE 11 History to Edge....but not the other way round.

    Unless you can find another application to do the job.
