I don't think you can view the up-to-date favorites folder.

As I understand it, Edge has now changed its behaviour.  Its Favorites are now saved in a database instead of as separate shortcuts in a folder [i.e. it is no longer done the IE way].

I have not been able to find any Microsoft confirmation of this but did find a reference to the change along with revised procedures for backing up Edge Favorites in TenForums -
