Configure Microsoft Edge policy settings in Microsoft Intune

Using Administrative Templates in Microsoft Intune, you can create and manage Microsoft Edge policy settings on your Windows client devices. Administrative Templates use the ADMX templates for Microsoft Edge.

You can configure specific Microsoft Edge settings, such as adding download restrictions, using autofill, showing the favorites bar, and more. These settings are created in an Intune policy, and then deployed to Windows client devices in your organization.

Additional ADMX settings for Edge 96 and Edge updater have been added to Administrative Templates. This includes support for Target Channel override. Target Channel override allows customers to opt into the Extended Stable release cycle option at any point using Group Policy or through Intune.

When you use Intune to manage and enforce policies, it's similar to using Active Directory group policy, or configuring local Group Policy Object (GPO) settings on user devices. But, Intune is 100% cloud. For more information on ADMX policies in Intune, go to Use Windows 10/11 templates to configure group policy settings in Microsoft Intune.
