Step 1: Open Microsoft Edge

  • Launch the Microsoft Edge browser on your computer. You can find it on your desktop, taskbar, or by searching for it in the start menu.

Step 2: Access Edge Settings

  • Once Edge is open, look for the three-dot icon (…) in the upper right corner of the browser window. Click on it to open the menu.
  • From the dropdown menu, select ‘Settings.’ This action will direct you to a new settings tab.

Step 3: Navigate to the Import Section

  • In the Settings tab, find and click on the ‘Profiles’ tab on the left-hand side.
  • Under Profiles, look for the option labeled ‘Import browser data’ and click on it. This option allows you to import bookmarks, passwords, and other browsing data.

Step 4: Choose the Source Browser

  • In the ‘Import browser data’ section, you’ll be prompted to select the source from which you want to import bookmarks.
  • You can import bookmarks from browsers like Chrome, Firefox, or even from a bookmarks HTML file if you’ve exported your bookmarks from another browser.

Step 5: Select What to Import

  • After selecting the source browser, you will see a list of items that you can import. This list typically includes favorites or bookmarks, saved passwords, browsing history, cookies, and more.
  • Check the box next to ‘Favorites or bookmarks’ (you can also select other items if you wish).

Step 6: Start the Import Process

  • Once you’ve selected what to import, click the ‘Import’ button. Edge will start importing the bookmarks from the chosen source.
  • The import process duration depends on the number of bookmarks and the performance of your computer.

Step 7: Check Your Imported Bookmarks

  • After the import is complete, you can find your imported bookmarks in the Edge bookmarks/favorites bar or in the favorites menu, which is accessible by clicking the star icon in the top right corner of the browser.

Additional Tips

  • If you don’t see your bookmarks, ensure that the bookmarks bar is enabled in Edge settings under ‘Appearance.’
  • Organize your imported bookmarks by right-clicking on them and selecting ‘Edit’ or ‘Sort by.’
  • Keep your Edge browser updated to ensure compatibility and security.

By following these steps, you can easily import your bookmarks into Microsoft Edge, making your transition to a new browser smooth and keeping your favorite websites easily accessible.
