Edge Favorites - In folders

    Question

  • When setting up the Configure Favorites GPO (CC > Policies > Administrative templates > Windows Components > Microsoft Edge) how would you create a folder structure to dump them in?  You know... cause as a company we like organization rather than dumping everything in the root?

    I assumed I could just set Value Name like this:

    Folder1\Favorite1

    Folder1\Favorite2

    Folder2\Favorite1

    etc...

    Nope. No dice.

  • Just that Edge simply doesn't have the feature.  That's the answer... Edge is basically public beta still.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    In my opinion, there is no built-in way to add folders to favorites.

    You could add folder to favorites manually and to check if the action modify registry with process monitor.

    If the action modify registry, you could modify the registry to achieve your goal.

    Best Regards,

  • So what you're saying is... Edge doesn't respect folder structure in GPO's.

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, we cannot create folder in favorite bar in Edge by GPO.

    You could import favorites from IE, or just like I said create folder in favorite in Edge and monitor which key changes. Then edit the key in registry to create folder by GPO.

    Best Regards,

    Jay
