Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance. The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS. You can keep track of the websites you visit frequently by adding them as favorites in Microsoft Edge. Each profile in Microsoft Edge will have their own separate favorites. Microsoft Edge allows you to easily import your favorites or bookmarks directly from other installed web browsers or from a HTML file. You can use the ImportFavorites policy to enable or disable users to import favorites from another browser into Microsoft Edge. If you enable this policy, the Favorites check box is automatically selected in the Import browser data dialog box. If you disable this policy, favorites aren't imported at first run, and users can't import them manually. If you don't configure this policy, favorites are imported at first run, and users can choose whether to import them manually during later browsing sessions. This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable allowing all users to import favorites in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge. You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable import favorites in Microsoft Edge. If you disabled the EditFavoritesEnabled policy, it will override this ImportFavorites policy. EXAMPLE: Import favorites always enabled or disabled in Microsoft Edge Here's How: The downloadable .reg files below will add and modify the DWORD value in the registry key below. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge ImportFavorites DWORD (delete) = Default 0 = Always disabled 1 = Always enabled 1 Do step 2 (enable), step 3 (disable), or step 4 (default) below for what you would like to do.

You can keep track of the websites you visit frequently by adding them as favorites in Microsoft Edge. Each profile in Microsoft Edge will have their own separate favorites. You can use the EditFavoritesEnabled policy to allow or deny users from adding, importing, removing (delete), renaming, arranging, and modifying favorites in Microsoft Edge. Enable this policy to let users add, import, remove (delete), rename, arrange, and modify favorites. This is the default behavior if you don't configure the policy. Disable this policy to stop users from adding, importing, removing (delete), renaming, arranging, and modifying favorites. They can still use existing favorites. This can be handy in an environment where you add the favorites you want for all users on the computer to use in Microsoft Edge without the users being able to change them. For example: in a work, school, or family child environment.

The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS. Data breaches worldwide have been on the rise and the security of your data is one of our top priorities. Password Monitor on the new Microsoft Edge notifies you when your online credentials have been detected on the dark web. If Microsoft Edge uncovers a match with your saved passwords, you will receive a notification on the browser informing that your credentials have been compromised. Through a dashboard view, people can see a list of all affected accounts, visit the websites directly, and take action accordingly. After you turn on Password Monitor, Microsoft Edge begins proactively checking the passwords you’ve saved in the browser against a large database of known breached credentials that are stored in the cloud. If any of your passwords match those in the database, they will be shown on the Password Monitor page in Settings > Profiles > Passwords > Password Monitor. Passwords listed there are no longer safe to use and need to be changed immediately. When your credentials are checked against the database of known leaked credentials, powerful encryption helps prevent your information from being revealed to anyone. Information about which password has been compromised is only available to you.
