Exchange Server Internet Explorer Favourites

Posted on 2011-03-15

I'm trying to set up a favourites folder for everybody in the office that I can update when I need to. Is there somewhere I can place the Favourites Folder centrally on the exchange server so it shows in eveybody's Internet Explorer?

On a side note, I tried setting up my Favourites Folder first and then copying it into everybody profile on the Exchange server, but this didn't seem to work (they didn't show up in anybody else's IE), any ideas why?

I would simply use Group Policy to add URLs to Favourite/Links folder.

Or copy the .url files to %userprofile%\Favorites in a login script if you run one.

Create and Link a new GPO to User OU and modify following:
User Configuration > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > URLs > Favorites and Links
