Edge GPO settings: All Group Policies available to configure Microsoft Edge Settings

Microsoft Edge is the best browser for shopping Microsoft Edge is the only browser with built-in tools to help you save time and money when shopping online. 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. Please refer to the following guides for related articles. Pre-requisites for setting up a Single and Multi App Kiosk, and how to disable the sleep mode in Windows 10 to never turn off the displaywhat is Registry Editor and how to access the registry hives and how to search through Windows Registry.

Group Policy is a feature of Windows that facilitates a wide variety of advanced settings that network administrators can use to control the working environment of users and computer accounts in Active Directory.

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.
For Computer Side: Navigate through the following;
– 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, and 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
