Thinking about getting a new desktop. I currently run Win 10 Home 32 bit and new PC will be Win 10 Home or Pro 64 bit. What is the easiest way to transfer my Edge favorites (bookmarks). Have searched the net and found several different methods which seem to vary based on Win 10 build. It is all confusing to me. What is the easiest (least likely for me to screwup) way to transfer my Edge favorites. Thx.

If you are currently running Edge and signed in with a Microsoft account, then your favorites are stored in the cloud just like with Chrome and Firefox and other web browsers. No need to move anything.

Sounds good, thx. So, I startup the new PC and sign in to my MS account. Then I open Edge. Will my favorites already be there or will I have to import them from the cloud? I do have a MS account but I never login. Will I always have to login on the new PC to see my favorites?

Export your Edge favorites to a HTML file and copy it to a flash drive. Can't hurt.

No. On your old computer sign into Edge. On your new computer sign into Edge.
