Hi

 

I am noticing the GP "Configure Favorites" doesn't work as a user policy. It does apply at the computer level.

 

Tested using a working value, managed favorites folder and links appear if it's applied at the computer GPO but not at the user level. 

 

I'd like to provide different favorites for different GPOs so applying at the user level would be handy.

Hello. I can't Agree with you. We provide several Favorites in User GPO without Problems. We use only User GPOs for whole Edge GPO Konfiguration. 

 

 

@Joachim_T 

Funny story. Today after no changes, it is working. Guess I just had to be patient.

 

 

 

@wcsand 

 

Can someone advise what needs entering into the Configure favorites field?

 

I guess this must refer to the file built out for the links but I am not sure on 2 counts:-

 

- Path syntax

- Extension of file name itself

 

Any advice would be great.

I was able to get this work in the end.

 

Turns out the string has to be on one line.

Here's a link to a simple favorites creator for Edge Managed favorites. It creates the text in the right syntax for you to copy / paste
