The 'Legacy' MS Edge had a Group Policy that allowed an "offline" browser favorite Sync on a local system between IE and Edge: 

 

Windows Components/Microsoft Edge

"Keep favorites in sync between Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge"

 

For Enterprises that aren't leveraging O365 and account Sync (or for whatever reason can't) this would make for a smooth sailing scenario. Any possibility for implementation?

@TheOtherJosh 

There is a lengthy discussion about this over at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/keep-favorites-synced-between-internet-explorer-a... already.

 

I've also opened a Call with Microsoft about this.

 

They are working on "something" and looking into possibly supporting a Google Chrome GPO that allows relocating parts of the browser profile (bookmarks, form data, ...) to e.g. a network location.

 

We are all waiting for something like this to be implemented.
