    How to Enable or Disable Web Content on New Tab Page in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10


    Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

    By default, users can select to have the New Tab page open with top sites, top sites and suggested content, or a blank page in Microsoft Edge.

    You can use the Allow web content on New Tab page group policy to enable or disable web content on the New Tab page in Microsoft Edge.

    Disabling this policy loads a blank page instead of the New tab page and prevents users from changing it.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable web content on the New Tab page in Microsoft Edge for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable web content on the New Tab page in Microsoft Edge.


     CONTENTS:

    • Option One: Enable or Disable Web Content on New Tab Page in Microsoft Edge in Local Group Policy Editor
    • Option Two: Enable or Disable Web Content on New Tab Page in Microsoft Edge using a REG file
