    Do we know where Edge settings are located (e.g., homepage)?


    We previously found the Edge bookmarks, but do we know where general Edge settings are located (like the pop-up blocker, the homepage, etc.)?

    I would have thought they'd be stored in the following path, but it appears I am wrong:

    %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\Settings

    I am trying to figure this out so that I can distribute them as the default settings to my new Windows 10 deployments.

    Hello,

    OPTION TWO in the tutorial below can help for the home button.

    Wow, so universal apps CAN access the registry? Thought I read somewhere that they couldn't...Guess this puts that to rest. Maybe I can use Process Monitor for the other settings.

    It'll be worth a try, but any Edge settings should be set somewhere in the key or subkeys below.

    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge

    Hi there

    I don't think you need any registry keys -- you can get access to settings by just entering about:flags in the URL page.

    (Build 10240). I think this is where more options will be stored when Edge is updated a bit more in the future. It's OK-ish but I'm not getting rid of IE 11 just yet..

    For more "Standard" type settings just mouse click the 3 dots in the top window and choose settings.

    Cheers
