    How to Add or Remove Favorites in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

    You can keep track of the websites you visit frequently by storing them as favorites in Microsoft Edge.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove websites as favorites in Microsoft Edge for your user account in Windows 10.

    Note   Note
    Starting in Windows 10 build 10565, your favorites in Microsoft Edge are now stored in an ESE database file instead of the previous Favorites folder.

    Code:
    (New ESE database file location)
    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\120712-0049\DBStore\Spartan.edb
    
    (Old Favorites folder location)
    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites

    Starting with Windows 10 build 16226, you can now view your favorites as a directory tree when you save new favorites, and collapse or expand folders from within the “Add to favorites” dialog. Just click the “Save in” folder list to get started!

    Windows cannot find %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Spartan_cw5n1h2txyewy\AC\Spartan\User\Default\Favorite.

    "
    cw5n1h2txyewy" may be different for everyone?

    Hello Reldel,

    Did you look to see if they are in the folder below to delete them from?

    Code:
    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Spartan_cw5n1h2txyewy\AC\Spartan\User\Default\Favorites\Links
