Allow a shared Books folder

This policy setting lets you decide whether Microsoft Edge stores books from the Books tab to a default, shared folder for Windows.

If you enable this setting, Microsoft Edge automatically downloads book files to a common, shared folder and prevents students and teachers from removing the book from the Books tab. For this to work properly, your students and teachers must be signed in using a school account.

If you disable or don't configure this setting, Microsoft Edge downloads book files to a per-user folder for each student or teacher.

Supported on: Microsoft Edge on Windows 10, Version 1802 or later
