Windows 7: Adding Favorites at a level above individual user

Adding Favorites at a level above individual user

Is it possible to create a default set of favorites in Win 7 for IE above the individual user level? Am trying to put some specific URLs in favorites that will show for all new employees - and can't find any way to do it - other than send an email with all of them listed and have them individually add them.

Note - I am not in IT - so please send 'dummy proof' instructions (IT is telling me it's not possible. I know they did it in XP). thank you

Hello glfrlady, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Placing the favorite links in the hidden system folder below will have them added in all new user accounts that are created afterwards.

C:\Users\Default\Favorites

Hope this helps,
Shawn

or for them to go into current users and subsequent users use the folder: C:\Users\Public\Favourites (also hidden)

Your IT group needs more training on Windows 7. I build the favorites in this way in my image that gets pushed out for all our company resources, like our Intranet. It saves me time when setting up the image for an individual.
