Hi,

I'm Diego Rios, an Independent Advisor willing to help other Microsoft customers.

You can try the following procedures below explain how Export or backup Microsoft Edge favorites:

1. Open Edge browser.
2. Under Import favorites and other info section, there is a button called Import from another browser.
3. Now, under Import or export a file section, click the Export to file button to open Save as dialog.
4. Enter a name for the HTML file containing favorites and select a location to save the file before clicking the Save button. By default, the Edge browser saves the HTML file with Microsoft_Edge_Favortes_date name in the Documents folder.

We now expect Microsoft to add an option to export passwords saved in Edge browser.

Please let me know if this helped and works.

Best Regards,

Diego R.

Hi ssemich
depends a little on which version of Edge you have so if the following does not match what you see please let me know

click on the ellipsis (. . .)
select settings
under General look for "transfer favourites and other info"
click "import or export"
under "import or export a file"
select favourites
click export to file
select location
click save

Hi ssemich

In Edge this is counter-intuitive . . .

At the top right of Edge, click the 3 dots and choose Settings

In the 'import favorites and other info' click 'Import from another Browser'

Then click 'Export to File'

That will save your Favorites as a HTML file that can be imported into most browsers . . .

That's It
