Introduction: Importing Browser Bookmarks Into Microsoft Edge

Picture of Importing Browser Bookmarks Into Microsoft Edge

The Firefox Browser has some issues with the flash player crashing. Updates to flash player do not seem to be helping. Since it is appears to be something within Firefox, I wanted to try a different browser. With the new windows 10 install I was given access to a new browser called EDGE. I decided to try the browser, and so far it doesn't seem to have the issues I was having with Firefox. I decided to import my bookmarks from Firefox. This instructable is the result of what I figured out in order to get this to work.

I also recorded a video which demonstrates the process, can see it here:
