4th click: pick with browser you want to import from, Internet Explorer or Chrome

But there are also a few things you should be aware of.

  • If you have multiple Chrome accounts set up, only the first one will be used to import the bookmarks. However, you can export the bookmarks from Chrome to an HTML file and import them in Edge.
  • If you import from both Internet Explorer and Chrome, they will be mixed in Edge. Organize the bookmarks in different folders first before importing them.
