  2. Select Bookmarks > Bookmarks manager
  3. Select Organize (three vertical dots on the blue banner) > Export Bookmarks and save the file to a common file location like Desktop.
  4. Transfer the file to your Windows 10 S PC. You could email it to yourself, save it on a USB drive or upload it to your OneDrive. The file should be called something like bookmarks_x_xx_xx.html (the x represents today’s date)
  5. Now, on your Windows 10 S PC, open Microsoft Edge, select Settings and more  > Settings > Import from another browser > Import from file and select the file you transferred to this PC.
  6. If everything worked, you should see "All done!" in Microsoft Edge
  7. Select View imported favorites - your favorites should be in a folder called Imported from Bookmarks.

Keep your favorites here or drag them to wherever you want.
