Restoring your Edge Favorites from a backup.

The Edge browser is fast, does not have a lot of plugins/extensions, thus makes it a relatively secure browser for Windows 10. However there still seems to be a bug in Edge that initialises the Edge browser. You than lose your favorites and favorites bar(s).

How to restore your favorites in Edge

If you got a machine backup just follow this procedure:
  • Close the Edge browser
  • Restore the following folder (overwrite):
    C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\
  • Start your browser
  • And you are ready to go

Warning

Since the Fall update of Windows 10 the old favorites folder is no longer used and an ESE Database file is used instead. The old favorites file location was:
C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites
