I tried Windows 10 over a year ago but decided to go back to 8.1. Ive decided to come over to Windows 10 permanently now so bare with me Im a total Windows 10 novice!!! :-) My question is about importing bookmarks in the Edge browser. With Internet Explorer in Windows 8.1 I always backed up my Bookmarks/favorites in HTM format by exporting to a USB flash drive for safe keeping. Also, Ive always used a local account on my laptop previously so when Ive done a clean install ive imported the bookmarks into explorer after Windows installation. Everywhere Ive searched on the net says that you cant import bookmarks in HTM file format directly into Edge yet. Ive read that with Windows 10..you have to firstly import the bookmarks into Internet Explorer 11 and then have Edge import them from the Internet Explorer browser. Is that still the case?
My current situation is I have my Bookmarks/favorites from Windows 8.1 saved in HTM file format on a USB flash drive and I want to know the correct method to transfer my Bookmarks over into the Edge browser in Windows 10.
Also, For future reference...When you have the bookmarks set up in Edge. How do you back them up correctly...and import them back into Edge when required?
I just want to be sure I understand the Import/Export Bookmark/Favorites file correctly and if it can be done in HTM file format as I used to be able to do in Windows 8.1.
Thanks for your patience. Im sorry if that was a long read!! :-)
