Edge - back up history, saved passwords, etc.?

Recommended Posts


We are replacing one of my employee's computers today. He's running Edge and wants to back up not only favorites, but browsing history and saved passwords. Is there a way to do this? We can't use sync because it's greyed out in the settings panel, presumably because we are on a domain. He has saved settings for logging on to our payroll company as well as banking. If we can't transfer Edge data to new computer, then it's going to be a lengthy and major pain of a process to reset the payroll login info.


Is there a folder in appdata or anything that can be copied and pasted on the new computer to bring everything over? Or a way to unlock the sync settings panel so he can use a MS account to sync everything?

Favorites can be backed up in Edge (... > Settings > Import from another browser > Export to file)


Passwords I think can be done from the Windows Credential Manager (not 100% sure)


No idea about the history

This is a good time to practice better password credential storage? The company should pay for Lastpass at least for him.
