    Does this work if IE is on one computer and Edge is on another?

    (If not, I suppose I should download IE11 onto the new computer.)

    Brink:

    Those are excellent annotated snips/graphics, thanks.

    I could not get the Favorites Bar items to copy or import into Edge, so just typed in each website then click the star, then selected the Favorites Bar folder to add the link. Took time but got it done.

    Thanks.
