    Hi there, maybe anybody can help. I want to find, and delete the "persistent/permanent Cookies" (not the flash cookies) in WIN 10 pro. The "session(short time) cookies" i can find and delete it here: "shell:cookies", but where Win 10 do store the persistent/permanent Cookies?

    Thanx

    First sightings were made under

    Code:
    C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\#!001\MicrosoftEdge\Cookies
    C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\#!002\MicrosoftEdge\Cookies
    C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\Cookies
    the exact path is stored somewhere inside the registry (IDK the exact reg path for edge)

    the reg path for old IE is
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\Cookies
    (Possibly also for win10 core cokies)

    Hi there, thank for your posting. :)

    There is no Cookies Folder under this path.

    sorry i dont have win10
    but I currently deal with cookies.

    Gererell is the program which receives or sends cookies responsible for the administration of the cookies
    Cookies have a security bit. based on this bit the program store the cookie somewhere on the HD (Persistent) or temporary (eg. HTML.document.cookie)
    browser usual have also a intern cookie cach (memory) filled on startup.

    the file format for cookies ar not fixed
    eg. firefox store all cookies iside 1 SQL-file (cookies.sqlite)
    IE use *.txt plain files
    etc

    edge ? (maybe .txt, .xml, or whatever) - maybe 1 file, maybe each cookie in 1 file - IDK
    do you expect plain *.txt files (like IE) ? - I suspect the cookies file content are possibly encrypted

    do you turned on (i just ask for security)
    - 'show hidden files and folders'
    - 'show system files and folders'

    do you find none of this Folders? or does the path general not exist on your system?


    cookies are usual user-related
    search the registry under
    HKCU
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
    for the word 'Cookie'
    and for 'Edge'

    and check the result

    Until now, seems no really reliable knowledge about the Edge cookie handling to be known.

    BTW: wich exact win 10 version and wich exact Edge version do you use?

    Maybe check WinInetCache?

    %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache
