Suggested Sites on the Windows 7 Service

We have noticed that every time a users logs into a different computer a new ‘Suggested Sites’ folder is created in ‘Favorites Bar’ of IE11. Since we do not display the ‘Favorites Bar’ on our Service, most users are unaware of this fact. This is a result of the interaction between ‘Suggested Sites’ and ‘Folder Redirection’. The simplest way to rectify issue this is to turn off the ‘Suggested Sites’ feature via Group Policy.

This change will be applied to the service on the following schedule.

19th August – IT Services: Staff and Labs
24th August – Support: Staff and Labs
26th August – All Staff and Labs
