self-imposed edge management policies interferring with browser

vvxrtues 0 Reputation points

I have a policy set (using Regedit) to force allow some extensions, and now I cant set simple settings just because of it. I also tested with user scope policies, same result

Below is the policy I set

And here's an example of a setting I can no longer change because of this policy:

    Hi @ vvxrtues,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    I also used the registry to reproduce this scenario, but through my research and investigation, I found that it was not just the "ExtensionInstallAllowlist" policy that caused the "Use secure DNS to specify how to lookup the network address for websites" to fail. Other policies set in the registry will also cause this setting to display "This is turned off for managed browsers".

    Therefore, this problem is not caused only by the policy "ExtensionInstallAllowlist".
