Transfer the Saved Data from Google Chrome to Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge has a built-in importer that automatically detects and imports data from the system’s existing browser. You can choose the data type to be imported and let Edge complete the import process.

We can choose Google Chrome as the source browser and select the appropriate Chrome profile to import its corresponding data.

In this guide, I have shared written instruction about:

    choose what to import from Chrome to EdgeYou may also select to import payment history, browser settings, extensions, and other personal info.

Note: When you freshly import browser data from Chrome, your existing passwords will be updated with the new passwords when you have duplicate records.

Bottom Line

If you want to explore Microsoft Edge for a change, you do not have to resave your existing bookmarks or passwords manually. Import the data from your older browser to Edge using the built-in data importer with a few clicks.

We can migrate all the browsers and saved data, like passwords, addresses, payment methods, extensions, bookmarks, etc. and continue browsing with same.
