    The downloadable .reg files below will add and modify the DWORD value in the registry key below.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge

    EdgeShoppingAssistantEnabled DWORD

    (delete) = Default
    0 = Always disabled

    Hello Peter,

    Odd. It's still available for me in the 89.0.774.54 stable version. Not sure why it went AWOL on you. I don't see any flags available to remove this feature.

    You could probably use a VPN with a US IP address as a workaround.
