    Hi @wael shaaban ,

    I would like to inform you that the policy template for MS Edge browser needs to be downloaded on the Windows or Windows Server OS. You could download it from this link Download Edge policy template

    Scroll down to the part shown in the picture below. select the details from the dropdowns and click on the Get Policy files button to download the template.

    1. On a domain controller or workstation with RSAT, extract the downloaded file, go to windows > admx.
    2. Copy the msedge.admx file to the PolicyDefinition folder. (Example: %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions)
    3. In the admx folder, open the appropriate language folder. For example, if you’re in the U.S., open the en-US folder.
    4. Copy the msedge.adml file to the matching language folder in the PolicyDefinition folder. Create the folder if it doesn't already exist. (Example: %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions\EN-US)
    5. To check whether Edge policies are added correctly, open the Group policy editor. Go to Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates . You should see Microsoft Edge, if you expand it you could see all the relevant policies.

    For more information, please see Add the administrative template to Active Directory

    Best Regards,
    Deepak
