Microsoft Edge stores all it’s bookmarks / favourites in it’s own application folder. The full path to the folder is shown below. There is no reason to replace %username% with your own in the path below. Windows automatically replaces %username% with your current User Name.

You can paste old Internet Shortcuts in the folders and Microsoft Edge will automatically detect them. It does not use any new kind of storage.
