Does anyone know if it's possible to copy settings (history/autocomplete/extensions/etc) from Canary to Dev or vice versa? Is there a folder/config that can be copied from one install to the other?

 

The current issues with Canary make it pretty unusable right now and I would prefer not to go back to Chrome.

@james_edge Look at the following folders

 

"%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Edge Dev"

"%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Edge SxS"

 

You can copy either the Application folder from Dev to SxS or the User Data folder from SxS to Dev.
