    Hello folk!

    In my daily life I used two PC and one Microsoft Phone. All of them with same Microsoft Account. Here some days, Edge from my second PC stopped sync my bookmarks, maybe and other stuff (pass, form) but for sure bookmarks. I double check that my primary PC and my Phone is working fine!

    What you suggest?
    I'm really scare to try to reset my edge (like this) because I'm scare to mess my PC more.

    Thank you in advance!

    I don't to become a insider, but this issue I have at least from two builds now.
    Do you believe also that the resetting the edge is not a so good idea?

    I think that the import tool is something different with the sync feature. I mean the feature that allow to automatic update the bookmark library between your devices.

    Btw I resetting my edge like this it was successful but now I don't know how to start again the sync and my bookmark library and the reading list is complete empty.

    The problem was about my primary PC,*the one*I thought is working correct. When I close and reopen the sync function there, it has remove all me bookmark and reading list ...at least the sync function now works correct.

    Unfortunate, I haven't any backup and I try to restore a system point without any success. But okey, I have the sync feature :P

    I've been using Windows 10, since the developer release (release, prerelease, slow, and fast insider - currently slow insider).
    I also have a Windows phone (Redstone 2).
    My phone has all my favorites and my computer HAD all my favorites.
    I had to reformat, my computer, and now those favorites are gone.
    I don't recall having problems with sync, in the past (well, since it actually worked).
    I don't want to import favorites, since I don't have those favorites anywhere else.
    I'll give the Edge reset thing a whirl, though.

    Well, the reset didn't change anything.
    I went snooping around my Edge settings and I noticed something strange...

    It says Account - jj@anti-exe.com link (my Microsoft account)
    Sync your favorites is greyed out
    Some Windows features are only available if you are using a Microsoft account or work account (which I am)
    Device sync settings link

    When I click the jj@anti-exe.com link, it opens the Email & app account page.
    Listed is my Microsoft account, Outlook e-mail account, and various other e-mail accounts.

    When I click the Device sync settings link, it opens the Sync your settings page.

    I wonder if the issue might be that my Microsoft account, Outlook account, and one of my other e-mail accounts are all the same address (jj@anti-exe.com).
    I wasn't an issue, in the past, that I'm aware of.
    I've been using it, like this, the whole time.

    Any ideas?

    The strange thing is that it remembers usernames and passwords.
    But it isn't remembering form fields.
    It's weird...

    Having same issues. Edge will not sync favs to other windows 10 devices both mobile and desktop. Anyone figure out what the issues is? All systems have latest production release non insider.

    I am having this issue as well. Slightly different though in that I am running Windows 10 on a Lumia 1520, a HP laptop, and a Surface 3. I do a lot of surfing on my phone and add most of my favorites to my phone 1st and it used to sync with my other devices. A few months ago it stopped syncing. All of them stopped syncing with eachother. I now have 3 different devices with 3 different sets of favorites and I cannot get them to sync. So I deleted my favorites from the laptop and hoped it would re-sync. Nope, that didn't work, it will not sync. Next I clicked on sync with my Surface and instead of syncing the favorites I still had on my Surface to my laptop, it synced with my laptop and I have lost all the favorites I had up until 3 months ago. So the only favorites I have are the ones on my phone. They are the ones I do not want to lose.

    I am using the same account on all devices, Sync is enabled on all devices. So my question is how do I get them to sync? More importantly, how do I make sure that favorites don't sync the wrong way and delete all my favorites from my phone instead of syncing from my phone to all my other devices like I need it to? After all, it just did that with my Surface. There needs to be a way to select where you want things to sync from and where you want them to sync to. But right now, this issue has got to be figured out. The only thing I can think of is a complete reinstall of Windows on my laptop and Surface but even after that, there is no guarantee they will sync or continue to sync after the install. Edge is horrible as it is, this just makes me completely regret ever using it and ever upgrading to 10 on my phone.

    I have a Lumia 950, 2 Windows 10 desktop and a Surface Pro 3, and all of them don't sync since Oct. Anyone else have the same problem? I have reinstall one of my desktop 5 times and still no luck. The weird things is, even my OS settings is not syncing, eg, Theme, profile photo, etc. It may be a OS or MSA issue too.

    Anybody figure this out? I have opened a ticket with MS. After a week of going back and forth and being transfer to level 2 support I am told Edge does not support syncing favorites??? What the! Did MS kill this feature? I think the tech is blowing me off.

    Still no go, so frustrating. The problem is on mobile, I am left rebuilding my favorites. No Chrome browser to import favorites from.

    Why do you think the problem is mobile? I am fairly certain it is an MS account issue. I created a new MSA, logged in with my daily PC, backup mobile and two other systems. All sync

    What I meant was, on mobile, there are no way to sync bookmark with Chrome. I can do that with desktop. My current solution is export my bookmark.htm into Onedrive. Then download it and open on mobile if I need specific bookmark. For reading list, I have started to use Poki, its available on W10M too. This will do until MS fix this issue. Please keep hammering the feedback hub with this issue.

    Ah got it. So an update to all. My ongoing case has made it to two level 2 support techs. The last tech says he will send the case to MS cloud research department. He did say that MS is aware if the problem and they are working on it. Whatever that means. Seems like this has been going on for months.

    I have the same problem, but more annoying, Edge has stopped acccessing the history from the address searchbar. So I have to type every URL, all of the URL, even though I have visited that site previously. All the URL's are in the browser history.

    I'm gonna have to go with Chrome until this is fixed.
