Another new feature in Edge Canary Version 81.0.411.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit),

Favorites/Bookmarks Duplicate removal option

 

if you click/touch the Favorites button on toolbar

Or go to your Favorites manager: edge://favorites/

 

you will notice this option at the bottom-left of the page

Clicking on "Remove Duplicate Favorites" tells Edge to check for any duplicates in your favorites by scanning them

I Just scanned my favorites and I didn't have any duplicates

@HotCakeX Version 81.0.416.6 (Official Build) dev (64-bit). Remove duplicates is not working for me, on any of my machines. Favourites were working prior to this current update have gone out of whack again, as with many older versions previously. Sync has worked fine until this update. Clicking on Remove Duplicates does nothing at all currently. Josh did mention this Duplication as the first item under Known Issues for this release.

Yeah they also added Favorites sync issues back to the top feedbacks lists, again

I wouldn't use Edge as my primary browser until these are all fixed.

@HotCakeX This is a great idea but isn't really usable with large numbers of bookmarks.  I have hundreds, so seeing "20 duplicates were removed" without knowing which ones, or in which folder, prevents me from knowing what I'm agreeing to delete.

 

This, compounded with the bug where the "Edit Favorite" window closes and creates a favorite in whatever folder you had selected when that window closed makes the remove duplicate feature even trickier.

@chris_conley 

I agree with you completely.

also, I think the sync engine for favorites should be reliable enough not to even need a duplicate removal feature built into browser. I've never seen any other browser have such tool in it.

the single fact that Edge has a duplicate removal too suggests that at some point a user will encounter a situation where their favorites will get messed up, it can either be old favorites coming back, favorites getting duplicated, favorites getting deleted or not even synced at all.

 

these happened to me before and I really hope these problems get highest priority for the Edge team to fix it asap before going forward introducing more features
