How to export and import bookmarks in Microsoft Edge?

Today, we will discuss the situation in which you need to export and import bookmarks into Microsoft Edge. The emergence of this need may be due to completely different situations, but in any of them, one must know exactly how it is to act to achieve a concrete result.

We also note that this article is suitable for those of you who work with the operating system Windows 10, since it is in it, there is a pre-installed Microsoft Edge browser. In addition, the advice from this article can only be used by the user who is constantly updating their system, since all others, the instructions below, may be unavailable for the reason that the browser itself has not received updated system capabilities and still can not boast specific options that were introduced into it gradually - according to the measure of software development.

How to export and import bookmarks in Microsoft Edge?

To start, start the browser and after that, pay attention to the icon in the form of "•••" on which you will need to click with the left mouse button. Now, you should follow the following path, which will be available in the context menu: go to "Options" → open "Import favorites and other data" → click on "Import from another browser".

If you need to import any data directly, then in this case, you make a choice of a specific program that will be located in the "list" and after that, click "Import". After the last click, you will only have to wait a bit, since the browser Edge will independently search for similar programs that are related to "Internet browsers". Each browser found will receive an individual name and the system will show you which list of options to transfer will be available.

It also happens that the system can not find the browser from which you want to move the data and the "list" is empty. In this case, you should try to export the bookmarks to a file and only after that, do the "Import from file into Microsoft Edge".

To perform the above procedure, go in the following way: in the browser window click the left mouse button on the icon "•••" → go to "Options" → open "Import favorites and other data" → click on "Import from another browser".

After this transfer, you can see that only "Favorites" were moved, but "Magazine" and "Passwords" could not be moved.

If there was a need to perform the transfer of "Favorites" from the browser Edge to another, similar software, then in this case, you need to use the function "Export to file". After clicking on "Export to file", you will see that the software creates an HTML file where all the bookmarks are present. Just created the HTML-file and it will be possible to import it into a third-party browser.

As you can see, exporting and importing bookmarks into Microsoft Edge is not as difficult as it seems at first glance, and even more so, this option is performed much faster than the same process that you could perform with your hands.
