All Group Policies (GPO) available to configure Microsoft Edge settings

On Windows 10, Microsoft currently has its new default web-browser as Microsoft Edge In this article, I will be discussing how to centrally administer Microsoft Edge GPO settings in the enterprise Active Directory domain environment.

From the Local Group Policy Editor console (gpedit.msc) and on Windows 10 1909, navigate to the section below, there you will find a list of policies that can be set for Microsoft Edge.

Computer Side:
– Computer Configuration 
– Administrative Template
– Windows Components
– Microsoft Edge 

Or from the User side as shown below:

User Side:
– User Configuration
– Administrative Template
– Windows Components 
– Microsoft Edge

This will display 55 different policies as shown below. Prior to this version of Windows 10, there were as little as just 10 policies.

The following policies below are available to manage Microsoft Edge settings as shown below.

Simple enable or disable any of these policies as it applies to you. and run


Or run the below if you will like to re-apply the entire group policy configured.

gpupdate /force

Note: You may have to log off and login again to have most policies applied, but for the configuration of Microsoft Edge, simple running the GPUpdate is sufficient.
