Disable Microsoft Copilot in Edge using a GPO

Geoff Major 21 Reputation points

Hello Everyone,

I understand that it's not possible to do this as such, but you can disable the sidebar. I've read that the policy is called Show Hubs sidebar and must be deactivated to hide the Copilot bar. It can be found in computer configuration under Policies => Administrative Templates => Microsoft Edge.

However, I've just imported the Windows 11 Administrative Templates 23H2 and there is no folder called Microsoft Edge directly underneath Administrative Templates.


Can anyone help?

    Hi @Geoff Major

    You need download and install the Microsoft Edge administrative template first. Please refer to this doc: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/configure-microsoft-edge#1-download-and-install-the-microsoft-edge-administrative-template.

    It contains the download link and tell you how to install the template.
