Steps to reproduce

Can you add a feature to allow up to import IE11 settings from a file location. I back up my browser settings to Onedrive. Currently, I have to have a working, functioning IE11 to import my settings. I need a better solutions. Also, I want to move off of IE11 after seeing the Edge Summit 2016 sessions

    • I opened this originally on Windows Feedback. I watched the Edge Summit and since this was an Edge Bug. I posted it here directly, Windows-Feedback:?contextid=346&feedbackid=22ce1c6f-ddbc-4470-ae64-a65c17558c4b&form=1&src=2

    • Also, I don’t get updates when you post. I do I enable this so I can know when you post?
