I just discovered that NewTabPageManagedQuickLinks has a max value of 3. Meaning if I try to pin more than 3 website it errors. Any reason why? This isn't mentioned anywhere in the documentation.

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/microsoft-edge-policies#newtabpagemanagedquicklinks

 

Also, as a suggestion. I think we should be allowed to configure an XML file path instead of having the use a single line format.

 

Having to use single line is a little annoying

{ "url": "https://www.contoso.com", "title": "Contoso Portal", "pinned": true }, { "url": "https://www.office.com/", "pinned": true, "title": "Office" } ]

 Compared to an XML file 

<key>NewTabPageManagedQuickLinks</key>
<array>
  <dict>
    <key>pinned</key>
    <true/>
    <key>title</key>
    <string>Contoso Portal</string>
    <key>url</key>
    <string>https://contoso.com</string>
  </dict>
  <dict>
    <key>pinned</key>
    <true/>
    <key>title</key>
    <string>Office</string>
    <key>url</key>
    <string>https://www.office.com</string>
  </dict>
</array>

@WC_KStill I can confirm this is an issue.

I even tried with shorter URL's and skipped "pinned" values to see if the registry key length mattered, but even this fails with 4 entries:

[{"url": "https://a.com", "title": "A"},{"url": "https://b.com", "title": "B"},{"url": "https://c.com", "title": "C"},{"url": "https://d.com", "title": "D"}]

I guess we'll never need more than 3 sites.
