    Hi Shawn, I today I wanted to clean up Chrome and try and import Edge favorites/bookmarks to it, and I found this:

    sooooo....
    I deleted ALL my bookmarks so I wouldn't get them doubled, and tried importing them, using Windows 10 Current Build 14393.693...
    it didn't work!(What! and I deleted all my bookmarks!)

    So I tried on another PC(I keep everything synced), nope, didn't work either.

    Then it came to me while I was taking a shower(that's where the best ideas come to one, right?)
    Maybe this is for the newer insider builds, so when I got out, I tried using my Insider VM, build 15031...
    And it worked!

    I then just had to go to Chrome's bookmark manager and drag & drop things how I want them, the result:

    So you might want to update the tut, but be sure to mention using the current insider build for now

    Hey Cliff,

    I had a play with it, and it doesn't seem the normal method to directly import favorites from Microsoft Edge to Chrome isn't working in Chrome right now.

    I've updated the tutorial to do so via an HTML file instead for now to help.

    I had to play with it for a while till it finally worked, they should do like Microsoft when they add something new, and open the browser to a information page of what's new, after an update, and maybe even have a link there for more information... come to think of it, all browsers should do that.
