Cookies of 'Bookmarked' sites - protect against accidental delete.

Brass Contributor

Idea - whether workable or not, I don't know.
It would be nice if Edge would have an option to 'protect' deleting of cookies of domains that are related to bookmarks. Those should be considered as 'important' (else such sites wouldn't haven been bookmarked) hence cookies it should not be able to delete such cookies in a 'simple way'. 
Delete in 2 steps:  delete bookmark and then the relating cookies.

Over time I have a lot of cookies and want to delete most of them. Whilst using a 3rd party cookies-manager I basically can delete all cookies. However, I want to keep the important ones, the ones relating to the bookmarks.

Edge already has an option for keep cookies and such for sites you do not want removed when you close your browser.... 

In settings

As far as I know, there is "no" limit to how many sites you can add.  




THANK you.
Obviously I was not aware of this feature. Going to check it out soon.

[Off-topic] Reason to check this out was / is the slow shutdown of my PC.
OTOH when I disable all startup services (msconfig > [Services] > Hide all MS services and uncheck the rest, then shutdown is fast, so it probably is some service that is causing the slow shutdown.

But at some point I thought of Edge and synchronizing history, cookies and all (?) 
Then this question came up.

Anyway, thanks again!

It would be nice to have some sort of "Import from favorites.html" , i.e. go into bookmark manager, export to html and import that as 'exception'


Maybe one day in future.
