    Favourites in Win 10 Edge doesn't work.

    When I click on any of my Favourite folders, imported from IE11 (some didn't make it), it doesn't open and Edge closes. Additionally, when Edge initially opens, the invitation to import Favourites is presented briefly before the folders appear.

    Any help to remedy this would be appreciated.

    I can, of course, use IE11 but that runs very, very slowly in Win 10, and I simply don't have the patience. (Edge is not exactly spritely either.)

    I have now, thank you.

    Tried the first method and that has worked, at least partially.
    I had expected to have to import the Favourites again, but the folders were already displayed. They now work correctly as far as I can see, but at least one folder isn't amongst them.

    Is there any way to delete Favourites now that they are present, or do I have to try gain resetting Edge?
