Edge Chromium GPO - not working

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have posted my problem here: https://www.wincert.net/microsoft-windows/chromium-edge-group-policy-not-applying/ and Nic asked me to post it here.

I'm planing to push out new Edge to the users in our domain but the GPO does not work. I have never had any issues with GPO before and we have used GPO for old Edge with no problem.

I downloaded the new ADMX files, created the GPO and tried it on a test user, I also linked it to the test users computer OU but no luck. The test username is Edge and computer is HP125. 

Both the user and computer is receiving the GPO if I run gpresult . It's a realy piece of crap that Microsoft can't do anything right at the beginning.

Hi Rick,

here is the working policy in our environment. Try to enable settings as we did.

Also, do you have any filtering in place? Can you please post  gpresult /r from the client machine here?

Hi NIM, I don't think the HTTPS would do any difference but here is a screenshot.

For this test I filtred on user and the computer.

Hi,

I didn't mean about HTTPS, I just though you can try to enable the same settings as I did.

Intresting, I did an exact copy of yours and I got one change, now when I open Edge instead of getting the default Microsoft new tab I got a blank page where the tab say edge://newtab and the favorits bar has also disappear.

In the same policy can you try to configure Computer Configuration. You should be able to do the same as you did for User Configuration.

I have now tried a couple of different options and and only one and a half is almost working for me.

 

If I configure under (user can override) "Configure new tab page URL" that url will be the start page and new tab page.

If I configure under Microsoft Edge "Configure new tab page URL" I will get a blank page with "edge://newtab" text in the tab. None of the other settings is applying exept favorits bar. I also tried configure the same in computer settings but no difference.

I finaly got it to work!

I downloaded the ADMX again and overwrite the files in sysfolder, after that it works and I don't have to link the GPO to Computer OU.

 

Thanks for the help!

Hmm, strange, I have downloaded the latest ADMX files available from Microsoft and still is not working as it should.

I'm glad you've managed to get it to work properly. Thanks for the info.
