Windows 10 is coming, and Edge browser is coming with it. Edge is Microsoft’s latest attempt at winning over the browser market. Like or hate it, Microsoft is trying to make things better with its browser offering and this is obviously the first step. The new browser ships with some new features which include a clipper, a reading mode, a reading list, and note taking. It doesn’t stray away from the basics though so if you’re giving the browser a chance, you might want to know how to get the Favorites bar to show up, and how to import your favorites (bookmarks) from a different browser.
First, to get the favorites bar to show up, click the More actions button and click ‘Settings’ at the very end of the menu that opens. Under ‘Choose a theme’ you will see a switch under ‘Show the favorites bar’ which when flipped will enable the favorites bar.
If you want to import your bookmarks from a different browser, click the ‘Import favorites from another browser’ option.
You can import favorites from multiple browsers at once. Simple check the ones you want to import from on the next screen and click the Import button.
That’s all there is to process and your favorites will be imported within minutes. You don’t need to export them from other browsers since Edge can import them directly. That said, you might want to import them from an HTML file because importing them this way doesn’t retain the folder structure as far as technical build 10162 is concerned. Let’s hope they fix it in the final build.
