How To Export All Edge Settings When Sync Not Possible

I'll be switching computers at work, and sync in Edge is disabled by the admin.

I've found how to export Edge favorites and passwords.

I haven't been able to figure out how to export cookies and other browser settings.  How can this be done?


The only way I have found this is possible is with Sync. Perhaps you can ask admin to temporarily enable Sync again while you migrate to your new computer.

I located this old discussion but with it being a work computer you may not have the option to Uncheck ‘Hide protected OS files’.

That would be with the "old" Edge too. I wonder if it even applies to the Chromium based Edge?

Oh, well.  I thought maybe I was missing something.  At least I was able to export Favorites and Passwords.

I still find a lot of things better about IE, at least for how I use my browser.

Unrelated to this particular issue, but printing selected text and adjusting headers and footers is still many times better (for me) in IE vs Edge.  As long as a webpage that I want to print can render properly in IE, I always use IE to print, either to an actual printer, or to PDF.
