How can I save all my bookmarks to a folder

January 22, 2021 at 21:08:03
Specs: Windows 7, Pentium 4 2GHz / 4 gigs.
How can I save all my bookmarks to a folder. I've got so many. Doing them one at a time would take too much time. Must be some easy way to save them as a batch right ? Thanks :)

Plenty to choose from here. All Free.

Which browser do you use? Use the Export feature.

And which version of the browser?

One of the browsers I'm using is the version of Edge that
came with Windows 10 in 2016. It lacks any way of saving
bookmarks/favorites. I hope that one of the programs John
linked to will work for me.

Jeff, why are you using an outdated version of Edge? In fact, why are you using Edge at all? I have it installed but don't use it. I just fired it up to check the version - Version 88.0.705.50 from 2021. And just like any other browser, you can backup all your favorites by using the Export feature. You just have to know where it is.

I think this is for the older version of Edge: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...

I originally started using Edge because it was the default
browser in my new Windows 10 computer. I am still using
it because it is still in my computer, it is still the default
browser, it still mostly works, and it still has a bunch of
bookmarks that I haven't yet figured out how to export.

I haven't updated it because I would have to update a
whole bunch of other things first, that I have no interest
in doing. Firefox works when Edge doesn't.

This computer arrived in November 2016. Export was
apparently added to Edge in 2017.

If you're afraid to update, just make Firefox your default browser. The old version of Edge, aka Legacy Edge, was built with Microsoft's own proprietary browser engine EdgeHTML and their Chakra JavaScript engine....it sucked. It was widely panned & hardly anyone uses it, except you, of course.

jam,

Interestingly, although that article calls Edge a "flop" and says its
marketing failed due to "a series of strategic mistakes", it doesn't
actually say that there were or are any problems with it. Just that
people weren't using it. Is that the problem with Edge, the fact
that people aren't using it?

There are a couple of websites that I use Firefox on because some
content doesn't show in Edge. Computing.net has always worked
perfectly in Edge, so that's what I've continued to use. Most sites
I visit seem to work without any problem. In fact the biggest problem
I've had in the last few weeks is with Firefox. Rather often when I
click a link I get a mostly-blank page. When I go back and click the
same link a second time, it always works on the second try. Always.
I think that has been happening with at least the last two versions
of Firefox, one in December and one in January.

"I myself am using the latest version of Firefox."

Ok then....here ya go...

It doesn't save them to a folder, but to an .html file (which should be sufficient). I export mine every few months and email them to myself to keep them safe. I rename the file to correspond to the date they're exported.
