[Solved] Windows 10 1511 ADMX Templates - Policies for Edge are missing

    Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I just setup a test environment and copied the ADMX's to %systemroot%\PolicyDefinitions and copied the adml files for english to %systemroot%\PolicyDefinitions\en-US

    I can see MicrosoftEdge.admx in place and as well the adml for it microsoftedge.adml

    EDIT:

    I can't see any of the settings under Windows Components\Microsoft Edge under User Configuration

    In the Windows 10 ADMX spreadsheet its specified as available in For User policy

    File: microsoftedge.admx
    Purpose: Sends all intranet traffic over to Internet Explorer 
    Context: User  
    GPP Location: Windows Components\Microsoft Edge

    I do see it under Computer Configuration..
    so.. either there's a bug in the documentation or in the templates..

    do you guys see the same behavior?

    Thanks.

    Do you use a central store? To verify: Within gpedit, when you click on
    "Administrative templates", what's the text right to that?

  • Hi Martin,

    I am not using a Central store, although, i did test it on central store scenario, and yet it didn't work.
    No Policies for Edge were shown as available for User Configuration

    Link for the spreadsheet is below: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=25250

    Right now, for me its quite confirmed as a documentation bug.

  • FYI

    The new Edge policy setting in 1511 are for Computer side only. This behavior is by design.

    Seems the spreadsheet is out of date.
     
    Alan is right that in the latest Administrative Templates (.admx) for Windows 10, Edge policy settings are for Computer side only.
     
    Mark has a good explanation on this in the thread below, please take a look:

  • Jumping on this as I have exactly the same issue.

    These are the template files: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=48257

    This is the documentation: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=25250

    The documentation states both User and Machine settings:

     Allows you to run scripts like Javascript   Machine   Windows Components\Microsoft Edge 
     Allows you to run scripts like Javascript   User   Windows Components\Microsoft Edge 
     Allows you to let people use autofill on websites   Machine   Windows Components\Microsoft Edge 
     Allows you to let people use autofill on websites   User   Windows Components\Microsoft Edge 
     Allows you to let people send Do Not Track headers   Machine   Windows Components\Microsoft Edge 
     Allows you to let people send Do Not Track headers   User   Windows Components\Microsoft Edge 

    So according to this, both User and Machine settings should be available? Yet I can only see "Microsft Edge" under computer settings.

    Is there any update on <g class="gr_ gr_201 gr-alert gr_gramm undefined Punctuation only-ins replaceWithoutSep" data-gr-id="201" id="201">this</g> please, this link seems to explain it: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/f9551c46-02cf-4e23-bc05-63f1959060ef/why-are-edge-settings-in-computer-configuration?forum=winserverGP

    So the Excel documentation is incorrect?
