    Where are Edge Favorites stored ?


    I was able to import them for ie to edge but I am not sure if there are stored on the hard drive or some place else.
    I liked in ie that you could edit favorites directly in the folder structured. I would like to edit edge so it uses the favorites folder instead of where it seems to keep a spate copy does anybody know how the edge favorites are stored?

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I found them at:

    C:\Users\USERNAME\Favorites

    Thanks , but no, that tutorial doesn't show how to display them once you have them

    But I did find it, after 5 days of using Edge. Tts the "Hub" icon to the right of the Favourites icon. Why they would choose to not use the Favorites icon to show Favorites is beyond me. But at least its there in the Hub icon.

    Right you are. I didn't even see that screen shot as it was part of the section I didn't read on how to remove a website from favorites. But sure glad the mystery is solved!
