Fortunately, you can import all that data from Chrome to the Edge browser with a few clicks. In this guide, you will learn easy steps to import data from one browser to another.

Migrate Saved Data from Chrome to Edge

Before importing the browser data from Chrome to Edge, install both browsers on your PC. I suggest updating Chrome and Edge to their latest builds. The importing of bookmarks and passwords will be error-free.

To migrate the bookmarks, passwords, and other saved data:

  1. Launch the Edge browser on your PC.
  2. In the URL bar, enter edge://settings and press Enter key.
  3. On the left-hand sidebar, click on Profiles.
  4. On the right side, scroll to Import Browser Data and click it.

Microsoft Edge is very similar to Google Chrome. Once you import browser data from Chrome to Edge, it can sync across the various devices on which you use the Edge browser with the same Microsoft account.

If you use the Edge for Android or iPhone, the Microsoft account will automatically sync the Chrome data into the smartphone browser.
