Hi I am currently having to rebuild Windows from scratch (again!) and can't work out how to set my Bookmark folder to duplicate th Windows 'Favorites' folder location. The reason for this is due to Windows forcing Edge to link to its apps despite not being the default program/app set as well as the legacy location from booting into different environments. I have tried the recommended add-ons but none of them just allow me to set the new location, which in my case is simply 'D:\Favorites'. I have done this with my old install (the one I'm using now) but want to set the same folder in my new install. Does anyone know of any settings, registry fix or simple change I might have applied to the old install. Thanks in advance

I thought, as it was a long time ago that the Bookmarks and Favorites were using the same folder. It appears that Firefox can't or won't use the same folder as the other equivalents. So I used Sync and 'hey presto!', my Bookmarks are all back! Case closed.
