How to configure Microsoft Edge Settings Using Group Policy?

With the release of Windows 10, Microsoft also introduced its new default web-browser Microsoft Edge. Let’s try to figure out whether it is possible to centrally manage Microsoft Edge Group Policy settings in the enterprise environment.
If you open the Local Group Policy Editor console (gpedit.msc) on Windows 10 RTM, then under section Computer Configuration -> Administrative Template -> Windows Components -> Microsoft Edge (and User Settings -> Administrative Template -> Windows Components -> Microsoft Edge) you can find 10 different Group Policy settings (quite a small amount comparing to almost 1500 different GPO settings for Internet Explorer browser). The following policies are available to manage Microsoft Edge settings:
  • Allows you to run scripts, like Javascript
  • Allows you to let people use autofill on websites
  • Allows you to let people send Do Not Track headers
  • Allows you to configured password manager
  • Allows you to run pop-ups
  • Stops address bar from showing search suggestions
  • Allows you to configure SmartScreen
  • Configure how Microsoft Edge treats cookies
  • Allows you to configured the Enterprise Site list
  • Sends all intranet traffic over to Internet Explorer
