Hi all,
I would centralize management of browser Edge (chromium based).
I have learned that there is Microsoft Edge Business (link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge/business/download) and I have seen that exist "file" that will permit to create GPO for Microsoft Edge Chromium based.
Here is very clear (how to import ADMX template on a Domain Controller): https://www.prajwaldesai.com/admx-templates-for-microsoft-edge/

I have some doubt about deployment.

In many company laptop there is Microsoft Edge, but it is not the business version.
I would deploy automatically to all computer the lastest stable version of MS Edge Chromium.
I know that I can deploy MSI software using Windows Domain GPO.
Will GPO installation overwrite manual standard Edge installation?

After all, my goal is to set Home Page, Home Button and other stuff just one time for all clients inside company.

Thanks so much!
Federico
