    Mirosoft Edge - Add Home button via Group Policy or Registry


    Hi all,

    I am in need of help. Need to get the Home button and the URL set via GPO or Registry for Edge.
    The device is joined to the domain and I have found some registry settings, but it does not seem to work.
    Even though the registry settings have been applied.

    Anyone out there has any ideas or tried and tested method to set this.

    Far as i know there is no such a registry value that will add the home button to edge and set it's URL path.

    The registry file i have uploaded works all you have to do is replace the "http://www.redmond.com/" with your home button page.

    You don't seem to need that bit in the .reg file, I've tested it and it works without it. You only appear to need the "HomeButtonEnabled" and "HomeButtonPage" bits.
