Microsoft Edge is the new browser bundled in with Windows 10 and is the direct successor to the Internet Explorer browser that was the default on the Windows OS since the beginning.

Contrary to popular belief, Microsoft Edge is a complete new build rather than being an Internet Explorer upgrade, and this is evident by the fact that the Microsoft Edge browser features previously unseen features, functionalities, a refreshed UI and a faster response time compared to its predecessor.

One of the most popular features of any web browser is bookmarks. Bookmarks help you save all your favorite websites or specific web pages in the form of a list, which is useful when you want to quickly browse the same web page at a later time.

Whenever you download a new browser and want to use it as your primary, the first thing you want to do is to export your bookmarks from your current browser and import it into the new browser so that you don’t have to create the bookmark list from scratch.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to export the bookmarks from the Microsoft Edge browser.

Step 1. Open the Microsoft Edge browser on your Windows 10 PC/Laptop.

Step 2. Click on the ‘three-dots‘ button on the top right-hand side of the browser.
