Business PC Web Browser syncing to personal PCs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have several Windows 8.1 / IE11 devices some of which are work desktops and others personal.

    The sync settings under Settings > Change PC Settings > SkyDrive > Sync Settings > Web Browser syncs Favorites, Open Tabs, Home Pages, History, and Settings.

    There has to be more people than I in this situation.. I wish to only sync Favorites and not Open tabs, Home Pages, History and Settings as we have an Intranet page set in Group Policies for the business desktops and when I open IE on my personal Surface Pro 2 and personal desktop it attempts to open this Intranet page and sets specific settings that I don't necessarily wish to have on my personal devices.

    Is there a way of syncing ONLY the Favorites and not the other bundled settings?

    Appreciate anyone's input.

  • Hi,

    As far as i know, this requirement couldn't be achieved. We couldn't disable this option from modern UI.

    To work around this issue, we could move "My Favorites" to skydrive folder:

    1. Find your "Favorites" folder from C:\Users\v-karehu;

    2. Right click it, select "Properties";

    3. Under "Location" tab, click "Move..." button to move it to skydrive folder.

    Thus it will be synchronized.
