    Gents,

    My Mom just bought a Win 10 Laptop and wants to migrate her favorites from Internet Explorer the Edge. We tried the typical export routine from IE to a file but there is no way she can find to get Edge to pull it in.

    I'd like to help but I'm still a Win7 type. I can't believe MS messed this simple thing up. I've read you can import your favorites to an upgraded version of Win 10 as IE is still there. But is there a way for to do this on a new Win 10 PC? She's spent hours trying to get this done.

    I'm sorry if this is posted elsewhere (I read pages of threads but no joy.:eek:).

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    AFAIK: Yes! Just, I don't use either IE nor Edge!

    A guess: Export the Favorites from IE (W7) and Import to the Edge (W10). You could also just the whole Favotites Folder from W7 (User Folder) and paste it into the W10 Computer (User Folder), that may works too!
