    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.

    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
