Set Microsoft Edge zoom level to 125% for all users logging into machine

I have several computers used for training and numerous users log in to these temporarily. After the user logs off it deletes their profile.

I set up Edge [current version - 95.0.1020.30 (Official build) (64-bit)] to open maximized with three tabs and now hoping it's possible to set the default browser zoom level to 125% or larger (without having the user manually do this every time).

I do not want our server team to create a GPO as this is only forty out of thousands of machines, so hoping for a script although will manually make the change through gpedit.msc or registry, I'm just not finding anything like this while searching the web.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Hi @ITTech2021-7141

I don't find such script to set Edge zoom level. For your demand, I think there're two options you can try.

Option one:

You can set zoom level in Edge Settings-> Appearance-> Zoom-> Page zoom like below. You only need to set it for once in Edge, then it will work all time.

Option two:

You can add --force-device-scale-factor=1.25 at Edge shortcut Target like below, then it will work when you start Edge. It's a little different than zoom 125%. It not only zooms the webpage to 125% but also zooms browser UI to 125%.

That will work, thank you so much @YuZhou-MSFT!

One last annoyance I'm hoping you have a line to add as well if it's possible to remove the "Complete setup/Maybe later" prompt?

Hi @ITTech2021-7141

If my solution works, you can kindly accept my answer and upvote it.

For the extra question you ask, in which situation will the prompt show? I can't reproduce the issue, but I find a similar issue. It seems that repairing Edge can fix the issue. You can follow the steps in Repair Microsoft Edge in this doc to repair Edge to see if it can fix the issue.
