Hello all,

 

How do I delete all the Edge Dev favorites?  As discussed here, Edge Dev has imported my Chrome favorites without sufficient warning. Instead I want Edge Dev to duplicate my Edge favorites. I uninstalled and re-installed Edge Dev - the Chrome favorites returned.

 

1)

This User Data folder is empty. - C:\Users\MYUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Edge Dev\User Data.

 

2)

I tried adapting the instructions from this 3rd party page for regular Edge, but it requires clicking "the hub button (showing 3 horizontal lines) and I do not see any "hub" button in Edge or Edge Dev.

 

TIA for any help.

To remove Favorites in Microsoft Edge Insider builds:

Export favorites just in case.

 
  1. Click on ... (Settings and More) button
  2. Click on Favorites
  3. Click on Manage Favorites
  4. Click on Export Favorites and save it on the Desktop.

Then you can Delete the Favorites as needed from that screen.
