Redirect Internet Explorer favorites on Windows 10

    Question

  • Hello,

    I made a GPO for Windows 7 systems, which redirects the Documents folder to the network. Simultaniously, I enabled the feature to redirect the Favorites from Internet Explorer 9 as well, which works fine on Win 7.

    Now I have a test client for Win 10 here, the GPO works fine as well with redirecting the folders and all, but the only thing which doesn't work is the IE Favorites redirection. This time, the IE version is 11.

    I can't find an explanation for that, could you help me out?

    Best,
    Alquantor

    Hi Alquantor,
    Have you run Gpresult to check if GPO is applied or not?
    and please check whether the correct value of registry key  below has been created on the problematic machines:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

    I'm unaware of differences in Folder redirection in regards of IE
    versions. But since you mentioned your OS version now is W10 - aren't we
    rather talking about Edge than about IE at all?
     
    AFAIK at the moment Edge is usable for most web sites, but it misses
    some manageability features, and I sligthly remember that favorites is
    one of them. But on the other hand, I might be wrong :)
