Configure Microsoft Edge settings using administrative templates with Intune

It’s possible to Manage Microsoft Edge with Administrative Templates directly from Intune. Let me show you how we can deploy an ADMX using Intune on Microsoft Edge.

Administrative Templates inside Intune is similar to group policies you use in Active Directory. They are built directly into Intune, including the possibility to use OMA-URI.

You properly already heard about Microsoft Edge is being rebuilt on open-source Chromium back in December.

Making the web a better place for everyone Back in December, we announced our intention to adopt the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility for our customers, and less fragmentation of the web for all web developers. Now we’re ready to show you what we’ve been working on, and invite you to come along on our journey.

Prerequisites check

Microsoft Edge settings apply to:

Microsoft Edge version 77 and later. To configure Microsoft Edge version 45 and earlier, see Microsoft Edge Browser device restriction settings.
Windows 10 RS4 and newer with KB 4512509 installed
Windows 10 RS5 and newer with KB 4512534 installed
Windows 10 19H1 and newer with KB 4512941 installed

We will now deploy an ADMX to the new Microsoft Edge browser and in this demo configure what page opens when Microsoft Edge is opened. > Device configuration > Profiles > Create profile -> Save
Go into settings
Press the drop-down on the right > choose Edge version 77 and later
Sites to open when the browser starts > Enabled > Input >

Now let’s Assign it to our test group and wait for it to be deployed 🙂
