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

For how to configure favorites on Microsft Edge via Group Policy, see this link.
– For how to configure a new tab page URL in Microsoft Edge via GPO, see this link.
– For how to configure static page in Microsoft Edge browser via Local Group Policy, see the following link.

Instead of saying navigate to the section below… could you please actually tell us where the section is?! If we knew where it was, we wouldn’t be reading your article.
User or Computer policy>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Microsoft Edge
