Hi Team,

    A small question, Policies for legacy Edge and Chromium are the same? I’m looking for the legacy Edge startup page policy, not for the Chromium


    I have a post scheduled for next week about the Edge Chromium Browser topic

    Also explained in the below video


    Are you using the Microsoft Edge or Microsoft Edge Chromium ?
    – Microsoft Edge Chromium has extensive Group Policy settings available to achieve this task.

    Have you tried below steps:

    Open the Group Policy Management Console (gpmc.msc)
    Navigate to
    Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Microsoft Edge.
    Double-click Configure Start pages, set it to Enabled, and enter https://YourCustomUrl/HomePage



    Hi, thanks for your reply.

    1. Through registry:”HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Protected – It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See”

    but it works only on the same machine. If I apply to the other machine, it doesn’t work.

    also tried with below registries

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\Internet Settings]

    none of the options are working.

    2. As per the below article through the GPO (Local GPO). it’s not working.


    Hello, How are you trying?

    – For Microsoft Edge Startup Page Settings, it directly stated you can export them as a .reg file, and only merge the .reg file on the same PC. Merging the .reg file that was “exported from one PC will not work on any other PC”

    – Have to check some updated templates or tweak.
