Raphaëlle Babin · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

Very helpful! Do I hear a Quebec accent?

Anthony Houston · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

Is there a way to delete all items from the reading list?

HotWax93 · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

After I got to the "Favorites" folder shown at 1:36, I get a message saying the folder is empty. Any solutions?

Elsa J · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

hi, just wondering how do I find my favorites when I heart things in my photos folder on Microsoft edge?

PeseSamoa75 · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

still empty

Alexander Challis · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

When I buy a car, or any other mechanical or electronic device I do not plan to spend so much time looking for fixes. Windows 10 is an enigma, On days when it appears to be running well, something else stops working. Lets go to favourites folder, where the feck has all of my 'favourites' gone? Still it is never boring next time it will be something else that has worked for ages going pear shaped. I started this on Edge. fed up waiting, so it was over to chrome. 10 is as we say in the UK 'Marmite' love it or hate it neither emotion has a logical reason. Going from crap to crap de luxe.

I would like to thank you for this excellent effort

chadergeist82 · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

The stupid update did a lot of bad work on my pc and my Edge favorites are gone and I can't find them. Can someone help me out on this?

Ahmar Siddiqui · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

I checked but in the last click on favorites there is empty folder

minor25 · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

my folder is empty

Fioneenacockeen · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

Thank you. I don't have "app data" for some reason… my list starts with contacts. The edge browser is a nightmare for erasing favourites and history and messing up the new tab settings. Why are Microsoft doing this? I'm beyond finished with them and their time-consuming , work-destroying and organisation ruining antics.. Linux is the way forward.

BDM · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

did just what you said and nothing its empty

Gamer freakTomboy · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

When I I look in the favourite folder there was nothing wtf why that?

David K Parker · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

Not there in my install. The folder is completely empty. My issue is Microsoft chose to import favorites even though I instructed it not to. Where from, I have no idea as I did a completely clean install. Now I have hundreds of old favorites I'm left deleting one at a time. It really is an awful situation for the customer to be in. Why wlould MS make this impossibly difficult? Well, it is anyone's guess. Back to Chrome I guess…

Chris Chan · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

Can u help me, I did everything your tutorial explained, except my favourites are not there?

Clifford Rutley · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

I suddenly lost all my Edge Favourites and when I followed your video I had no Favourites folder in the Default folder. WTF?

Bob F · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

I went to the last "Favorites" folder and there is no "Links" folder as it says that it is empty. I have Windows 10 64-bit Pro V.1703, OS Build 15063.332. I can only guess that with the various new OS builds, things have changed. My update is probably the latest released by MS.

I desperately need to sort my Favorites alphabetically. I mean the entire list not one directory at a time. It takes me forever to find my sites in this unsorted mess. Its driving me CRAZY. Gotta find a solution to this insanity !

Alpha Mike · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

I found the favorites folder but there was not a Links folder inside, any ideas?

Dorothy Kwan · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

I have done exactly as you described in the video. On the Link it shows however only the 'Favorites' I had when I first installed Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 last year. The rest of the 'Favorites' I added later were not shown. How can I update it to show?

Ryan K. · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

I found the folder on my PC, but none of my Edge favorites show up. Any solutions?

Oscar Delta · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

There is nothing in the links folder???? Help!

How do you get the favorites star to show in edge. It was there at one time now its not???

I have the favorites thing on in the settings in MS Edge but the favorites star is no longer showing and my favorites are all gone!

Danny Cuevas · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

I think you may have misunderstood my question. I know where the favorites folder is I believe. I just cannot find the favorites BAR…..folder. I want to arrange the bar folder.  With the bar I don't use the regular favorites anymore.

Danny Cuevas · May 15, 2019 at 3:11 pm

Yes "I do have a question. Can you speak about the "favorites bar" with similar video? For example, where is it? I looked under the favorites location you gave in this video and did not see "favorites bar" folder.
