I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is stupid, so The Edge doesn't automatically import them after the upgrade ? I had to import them myself. How ridiculous is this for users who have no clue !!!
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
No. Click on the three dots top right, go to settings, and Import favorites from another browser. Should work

Crazy that it doesn't do it automatically when upgrading to Win 10 !!!  <-- Favourites do import automatically into IE. I guess because Edge is very new, it did not happen.
