How to configure favorites on Microsoft Edge via Group Policy

Here I will be configuring the favorite page via the Local Group Policy. These steps are similar to setting the favorites via the Domain-wide Group Policy Management console. Configuring Favorites via local group policies has two configuration options that can be configured as it relates to you. Kindly refer to some of my contents around Microsoft Edge “How to block automatic delivery of Microsoft Edge Chromium-based, how to configure static page in Microsoft Edge browser via Local Group Policy, how to configure favorites on Microsoft Edge via Group Policy, how to forcefully remove Microsoft Edge Browser the hard way from your device, how to stop Microsoft Edge from remembering your email, and all Group Policies (GPO) available for configuring Microsoft Edge settings.

For Computer Configuration:
- Administrative Template
- Windows Components
- Microsoft Edge

For User Settings
- Administrative Template
- Windows Components
- Microsoft Edge

As the case may apply to you, you can choose any of the following paths above. For me, I will select the Computer Settings and proceed with the configuration as shown below.

Enter the URL in the value name and enable it.
Note: This can be achieved via the Registry settings and Microsoft Edge Settings. If you require further assistance, kindly let me know in the comment section below.

See this guide for a list of all available Group Policies (GPO) to configure Microsoft Edge Settings. I hope you found this blog post helpful. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comment session.
