I use Microsoft Edge Chromium.

I imported my favorites from Internet Explorer, as well as my passwords, cookies, and settings.


It was easy to do.

Like Orlando, I also still use the Favorites folder I initially created in Internet Explore.  I have a shortcut on my desktop.  If I want to ad another link to it, I’ll open the page in IE, and save the favorite with Alt D, then it’s there.  Since Chrome is my default browser, clicking on the link in the Favorites folder on my desktop opens it in Chrome.

I really miss the Favorites folder that was associated with IE.  I would love to be able to save bookmarks from Firefox and Google to the Favorites folder and search by first letter and have them open up in whatever our default browser is instead of each browser having it’s own list of bookmarks.  I have saved bookmarks in Firefox and in Chrome, but I then forget which one and can’t find them again when I want them.

It's too bad there seems to be no easy way to merge the list of favorites imported from IE with the list of bookmarks created in Chrome itself to create a single list that could be navigated by first letter navigation.

That is because the ctrl shift O takes you to the bookmark manager and not to the bookmark list.

It’s interesting, though.


Whenever I access the bookmarks list in Google Chrome via shift control plus O, I can’t do first-letter navigation to get to my imported bookmarks list from Internet Explorer.


To do this, I have to do alt F, then B for bookmarks, and then I can use first-letter navigation to my Inernet Explorer bookmarks list.


Not sure why the difference.

Shift+ctrl+o should go directly to the bookmarks list.

It would be nice, if you could assign a shortcut key to it.

Internet explorer had its ctrl+a to get to the favourites menu.

Any of the chrome based browsers that I have tried, seem to use a number of key presses to get to their version of bookmarks.

I did a little research, and I couldn’t find an extension with a ctrl+a for example to let you right at it.

Perhaps someone will right one eventually.

I am sure other people would like a single key stroke as well, coming from ie.

alt plus F followed by B seems to be the easiest among the methods you suggest.

This is definitely one of those, "whatever works best for you, do it!," situations.  Glad to have helped.
