Edge uses an internal Extensible Storage Engine (ESE) database to store favorites. The location of the database is:

C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\120712-049\DBStore\spartan.edb

To fully reset Edge

  2. Close Edge
  3. Remove everything from the following location:
C:\Users\%username\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe
