I successfully installed Windows 10 on my Panasonic laptop but when I went to Internet Explorer and then to Google, all my favorites were gone. I was under the misconception that this wonder-product would update my systems seamlessly.

 

Anybody out there have a solution?

G'day gbbates, and Welcome to BC.

 

Microsoft Edge is the default browser on Win 10.....did you install Internet Explorer..?

 

Do you have a backup anywhere..?

fed up with Windows antics...??

 

LINUX IS THE ANSWER

 

I USE LINUX MINT EXCLUSIVELY... NO DUAL BOOT, NO VIRTUAL MACHINE

 

 

 Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with your Microsoft product.

Yes re-import your favorites. Your favorites are stored in a folder under your account in the user folder.  Their is a favorites folder for every account that has logged into the PC. If you created a new MS account to login to Windows 10. The favorites folder you need is under another account in the User folder. Also IE is still in Windows 10.
