I was using Edge Canary as my main browser since it was launched, now I want to switch to the beta channel but I can't find how to import my history from Edge Canary, it doesn't show up in the browser list when I click on import browser data setting. While history sync is still in the works, is there any way I can do this?

Method 1:

 

1. go to your Edge insider Canary profile path. find it from here: edge://version/

2. find the file called history and copy it.

3. again use this edge://version/ but this time on Edge insider Beta to go to its profile path.

4. Close all Edge insider browsers and then paste/replace the history file in there.

 

Method 2:

 

here is some extensions i found that claim to be doing history import/export
