Force web browsers to save bookmarks, history, cookies in Onedrive

I'm looking for way to configure IE, Chrome and Firefox to save bookmarks (if not cookies, history, etc as well) to an alternate location.    In this case, a useras Onedrive folder, which is a local folder.    I'm not looking to export or backup.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

I have some information for IE.  It can be changed via Internet Options - General Tab - Browsing history - Settings

Favorites is a folder location that you should be able to do a link to the One Drive folder.

thanks travis but that appears to be for history and cookies only, not favorites.

Travis MartinezStorage EngineerCommented:
Yes, for the favorites you can move the folder to the One Drive location using robocopy

robocopy C:\users\user_name\Favorites C:\user_user_name\onedrive\Favorites /MOVE

Remove the original favorites folder...

Then create a symlink for it:

mklink c:\windows\users\user_name\favorites c:\users\user_name\onedrive\Favorites

There may be an easier way.  I'll look into it more or someone will be along to correct me.

Yes it is much easier than that.  Just open properties of Favorites, location, and "Move".
