How to Import Favorites and Bookmarks from Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer to Microsoft Edge on Windows 10

Microsoft Edge is the brand new internet browser shipped with Windows 10 and marks the end of Internet Explorer. First thing you will miss as soon as you launch Edge is your Favorites and Bookmarks from other browsers you have been using like Google Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer, etc.. You end up frustrated and this is one of the reason people tend to avoid trying new browsers!

Note that you won’t be able to import saved passwords as of now and I don’t think that will ever be possible due to security encryptions of the browser that stores the passwords.
