How can I import my Favorites to Microsoft Edge?

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:

  1. Open Edge and go to dotted menu (…)
  2. At the bottom of the main menu click on Settings to open settings window
  3. Choose Import favorites from another browserimport favorites to edge
  4. It will scan all browsers installed on your computer, so you can check from which browser you want to import favorites to
  5. 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.
