Windows 10 Fall Creators Update GPO: Managing Edge Favorites

With Windows 10 Fall Creators Update ready to deliver on October 17, there are some new Group Policy settings that will be introduced. As these are uncovered, we’ll highlight them here on myITforum.

  • ADMX File: MicrosoftEdge.admx
  • Overview: Provision Favorites.
  • Class: Machine/User
  • Location: Software\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\Favorites
  • Value: ConfiguredFavorites
  • Policy values: (Custom)
  • Details: This policy setting allows you to configure a default set of favorites, which will appear for employees. Employees cannot modify, sort, move, export or delete these provisioned favorites. If you enable this setting, you can set favorite URL’s and favorite folders to appear on top of users’ favorites list (either in the Hub or Favorites Bar). The user favorites will appear after these provisioned favorites. Important: Don’t enable both this setting and the Keep favorites in sync between Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge setting. Enabling both settings stops employees from syncing their favorites between Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. If you disable or don’t configure this setting, employees will see the favorites they set in the Hub and Favorites Bar.

 

  • ADMX File: MicrosoftEdge.admx
  • Overview: Prevent changes to Favorites on Microsoft Edge.
  • Class: Machine/User
  • Location: Software\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\Favorites
  • Value: LockdownFavorites
  • Policy values:    1 (Enabled);   0 (Disabled)
  • Details: This policy setting lets you decide whether employees can add, import, sort, or edit the Favorites list on Microsoft Edge. If you enable this setting, employees won’t be able to add, import, or change anything in the Favorites list. Also as part of this, Save a Favorite, Import settings, and the context menu items (such as, Create a new folder) are all turned off. Important: Don’t enable both this setting and the Keep favorites in sync between Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge setting. Enabling both settings stops employees from syncing their favorites between Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. If you disable or don’t configure this setting (default), employees can add, import and make changes to the Favorites list.
