You can only restore lost or deleted Favorites that have been lost or deleted in the past 28 days.

If you don’t see the Favorites icon in your browser bar, then there is a possibility that you have not turned on the Favorites button. To turn on the Favorites button, use the following steps:

Turn on Favorties button

  • Go to the Edge browser Settings by clicking three dots in the top right corner.
  • Click on Appearance.
  • Scroll down and turn on the Favorites button.

TIP: Microsoft Edge stores all the Favorites in a file with the name Bookmarks on your C drive. When you add a favorite or delete a favorite, this file is automatically updated. You can backup this file by copying it to another location. So, if you lost your Favorites permanently, you can restore them with this backup file. You can open this file with Windows Notepad or any text editor software. After opening it, you will see all your bookmarks.

That’s it. I hope this helps.
