  • Hi Biggerphil,

    Thank you for your question.

    Did you mean Favorites could not delete the specific item?

    If that, please check if there is an error when we delete it in favorites. Then we could close Windows edge browser and make sure the Windows edge is ending in Task Manager, then reopen browser to check if we could delete it.

    If not, we could backup all items, then delete all Favorites contents. Then import then and check if we could delete the specific items.

    Best Regard,

    Jim Xu
