A lot of Windows 10 users probably decided to switch to Microsoft Edge once it got fully released. And one of the main ‘problems’ when switching to another browser is adding your bookmarks or favorites from previous browser. So, I’m going to show you how to easily import favorites from your previous browser into Edge, so you don’t have to visit every site and do it manually.
Microsoft included option of importing favorites from other browsers into Edge, so you can easily do that, in just a few moments. Here’s exactly how to import favorites or bookmarks from other web browser to Microsoft Edge:
- Open Edge and go to dotted menu (…)
- At the bottom of the main menu click on Settings to open settings window
- Choose Import favorites from another browser
- It will scan all browsers installed on your computer, so you can check from which browser you want to import favorites to
- After you checked the desired browser, just click Import and the bookmarks will appear in Edge soon
That’s it, now you have all your saved favorites from other browser in Microsoft Edge. This is a great option, because going to every site individually and saving the favorites on your own would be very annoying, and it would require a lot of time.
Unfortunately, Microsoft Edge doesn’t support importing HTML bookmarks yet, also you can’t just drag your bookmarks from another browser to Edge, like it is the case with some other web browsers. We don’t know if Microsoft change it in the future, so we can’t tell you anything right now.
