is there anyway that I can move a specific favorites folder from Edge or Chrome bookmarks to my Desktop versus exporting it to another browser? I can manage my favorites a lot easier and I can do more things with them if the folder was on my Desktop versus being in the favorites folder Edge or Chrome.

Also where is the default location for Favorites folder in Edge and Chrome?

It's not folder based.

Tell me, what would you like to do that you cannot do within the favorites manager of each browser?

This was my question that I posted"is there anyway that I can move a specific favorites folder from Edge or Chrome bookmarks to my Desktop versus importing from another browser"?

There a lot of favorites within a specific folder and they are mixed up. It is a lot easier to sort through them multiple items and delete or create another folder by copy and paste which I can not do with in the browser favorites settings. This is what I am trying to do.

Lastly, I asked where is the default location for Edge browser favorites? Please reply.

In Edge, the Favorites folder is now located at %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites.

Thank you for the very helpful article. However when I clicked on the favorites folder it was empty yet I do have a whole bunch of favorites in my Edge browser. What do I need to do?

"It is a lot easier to sort through them multiple items and delete or create another folder by copy and paste which I can not do with in the browser favorites settings" - you can do that inside the browser, sorry, but this is all possible and easily done. Open chrome's bookmark manager. Renaming, url editing, drag and drop, folder creation... What are you missing? Same goes for edge.
