    Xbox- syncing on Microsoft edge or IE possible with a PC?


    Hello!

    I am wondering, is it possible to sync your xbox one internet explorer or microsoft edge data with your microsoft account (IE/ME) data on your PC? By this I mean is it possible to sync your web browsing/favorites on an xbox one between your PC and xbox in
    the same way that you can sync your microsoft search settings and browsing history between two separate PCs? If so, how does one go about doing that?

    -Dee

    Xbox- syncing on Microsoft edge or IE possible with a PC?

    Hey DeeVee

    Thank you for taking the time to post this on the Xbox Forums. We understand that you are currently inquiring about being able to sync your Favorites and browsing history onto the Microsoft Edge app on your console.

    At this time, there is currently no way to sync your Favorites onto the Microsoft Edge app on your console from other devices.

    There is, however a way to see your browsing history, but this works through your Microsoft account, and while in Bing search engine.

    This works by selecting the Menu icon on the top right-hand side and selecting
    Search history.

    Having this as a option would definitely be an excellent feature and I would suggest using the

    Xbox Idea Hub
    so that the engineers that work might include it in the future.

    I hope this was of some use to you.
    Hello,

    Thanks for the response. I had a few follow-up questions that might clarify my original question.

    1) When you say:

    "There is, however a way to see your browsing history, but this works through your Microsoft account, and while in Bing search engine." and "This works by selecting the Menu icon on the top right-hand side and selecting Search history."

    Are you just referring to the Bing search history in these statements? That is, I am assuming you are referring to the Bing search history and not the actual Microsoft edge search history in any way, is that correct?

    2) Thank you for letting me know that there is no way to sync favorites in Microsoft Edge. Assuming you are only referring to "Bing search history" being possible to sync and not the actual Microsoft edge history being possible to sync on Xbox (this being
    what i think you mean in your response and what my first question is meant to clarify), then this would mean there is no way to sync any of the settings with a Microsoft account and xbox in Microsoft edge, or are other settings able to by syncd at all?

    3) Lastly, has this inability to sync browsing history, etc., always been the case? Is it possible to sync browsing history for internet explorer instead?

    I figured this might work in the future, but does anyone know if this currently works or maybe did in the past for edge or internet explorer on the xbox one or xbox 360? I cannot seem to find anything online about it.

    In not to sure , I would have thought that as long as you sign in to both with the same account then you should . There should be a option to sync. Not sure

    I never have as I prefer ie on a computer to xbox 🤔

    I don't see any options to do this and I know that Edge on PC will be changing soon to be chrome based. Chrome does allow syncing but it all depends on whether they update edge on Xbox to the new chrome version and allow that setting. But it would be a
    great thing to have.

    To be honest I don't use Edge on Xbox One too much and in my PC I use Chrome, but I don't see any option on Edge to sync data.
    by this you are referring to not seeing an option on the xbox, yes? as i know you can do it PC to PC.
