Save script bookmarklets in Microsoft Edge
Recently, I use Microsoft Edge as my primary browser since plugins were supported, and I am really satisfied with it. However, save a bookmarklet was very tricky in Edge.
After the update in November 2015, the favorites were stored in the
spartan.edb ESE database in the file path like this:
Because this is a database, you need special tools and special care to edit it, but luckily it seems that the Edge also uses registry. I managed to find my favorites in this location in the registry:
Based on this, the script bookmarklet can be added to Edge with these steps:
- Add any page in Edge to the Favorites Bar as a placeholder.
regedit, and navigated to the path above.
urlkey of the placeholder favorites item that just added.
- Restart the Microsoft Edge.
