Allow importing of favorites

Allows 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.

You can also set this policy as a recommendation. This means that Microsoft Edge imports favorites on first run, but users can select or clear the **favorites** option during manual import.

**Note**: This policy currently manages importing from Internet Explorer (on Windows 7, 8, and 10), Google Chrome (on Windows 7, 8, and 10 and on macOS), Mozilla Firefox (on Windows 7, 8, and 10 and on macOS), and Apple Safari (on macOS) browsers.

Supported on: Microsoft Edge version 77, Windows 7 or later
