    Hi @Elizabeth Rubalcaba de Wright ,

    Edge maintains a backup of the bookmarks file. If you're lucky enough, you may be able to restore them. Please follow these steps:

    1. Close Edge.
    2. Go to your profile folder. By default, it should be C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default. If you are not sure about it, you can find it in edge://version (type it in the address bar) --> Profile path.
    3. Locate Bookmarks file and Bookmarks.bak file.
    4. Rename Bookmarks file into Bookmarks.old.
    5. Rename Bookmarks.bak file into Bookmarks.
    6. Launch Edge.

    Now you may be able to restore the bookmarks. However, it is also possible to lose some of them or simply fail to restore them (depending on whether Edge had kept the backup before the bookmarks were gone).
