Microsoft Edge and MasterCook.com Web Importer

How do I add the web importer to the Microsoft Edge web browser?

 The MasterCook.com web importer is a bookmarklet. The Edge web browser is the only web browser that doesn't allow you to drag/drop bookmarklets onto it at this time. However, each time Microsoft releases an update for Windows 10, it adds new features to the Edge web browser, so hopefully Microsoft will be adding this feature into their web browser which works in all other web browser including Internet Explorer.

Until then you have 3 other options. See choices below.

1. IMPORT FROM ANOTHER WEB BROWSER

You will need to add the bookmarklet to one of the other web browsers and then import that into the Edge web browser. Fortunately Edge allows you to import bookmarks and bookmarklets from other web browsers.

The above works depending on which version of Windows 10 you have. See this article. For example, Windows recently released the Creators Update for Windows 10.

2. IMPORT FROM AN HTML FILE

If you are using the Creators Update version of Windows 10, Edge has a new feature that allows you to import bookmarks from an HTTP file. See the screenshot from Edge below that has the Windows 10 Creators Update. You use the Import From File command as shown below. At the end of this article is an .html file that you can save to your computer and then import it into Edge.

Download the Microsoft_Edge_bookmarks.html file below to your computer. Then in Edge click on the command for Import From File. Direct it to the .html file to import it into Edge. It will then create a new bookmarks folder in Edge.

Then drag/drop the imported Add To MasterCook bookmarklet into the main Favorites Bar folder.

3. USE MANAGE EDGE FAVORITES

If the above doesn't work, then you will want to use this program: Manage Edge Favorites. It allows you to edit bookmarks in Edge since Edge doesn't allow you to do that right now either.

Below is the attached .html file that you can use as mentioned in Option 2 above.
