How to Enable or Disable Favorites Bar in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

The favorites bar is a toolbar in Microsoft Edge that you can add your favorite websites you visit frequently on to make opening them faster and more convenient.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17074, the Favorites Bar will now always automatically show on Start and New tab pages, if you have at least one favorite in it. When you navigate, the Favorites Bar will automatically hide to give you the most space for browsing. You may still choose to always show the favorites bar if you wish, via a context menu on the favorites bar “Show bar”, or via settings “Show the favorites bar”. The Favorites bar also now supports hiding names for individual favorite bar items, instead of having to either hide none or all names.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17713, you can use a new “Configure Favorites Bar” group policy to configure Microsoft Edge to either show or hide the favorites bar on all pages.

This tutorial will show you how to completely enable or disable showing the favorites bar in Microsoft Edge for all users in Windows 10.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17704, Microsoft added a new setting in Microsoft Edge to allow you to control whether sites can autoplay media.

  • Allow is the default and will continue to play videos when a tab is first viewed in the foreground, at the site’s discretion.
  • Limit will restrict autoplay to only work when videos are muted, so you‘re never surprised by sound. Once you click anywhere on the page, autoplay is re-enabled, and will continue to be allowed within that domain in that tab.
  • Block will prevent autoplay on all sites until you interact with the media content. Note that this may break some sites due to the strict enforcement – you may need to click multiple times for some video or audio to play correctly. Some sites may not work at all – in those cases, you can enable or block autoplay on a case-by-case bases from the website permissions pane (click the icon next to the address in the Address Bar).

Starting with Windows 10 build 17120, the Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG) Team has introduced new improvements for users to have a better experience. One of the items users voiced in the Feedback Hub was an inability to “download files from within WDAG” to the host. This created an inconsistent experience for Edge overall as downloaded files were stuck inside the container. In build 17120, users can now turn on a feature to download files from their WDAG Microsoft Edge browsing session onto the host file system.

After this policy (feature) is enabled, users can download files from their Windows Defender Edge session to their Downloads folder and open all files on the host. The files from Application Guard will be saved in a folder called Untrusted files nested inside the Downloads folder. This folder is created automatically when the user first downloads a file from Application Guard after enabling the policy.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the ability to download files from within a Windows Defender Application Guard Microsoft Edge session to the host for all users in Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise.
