I have created a rough Edge Chromium template for the new released Edge browser based on the Chromium engine.
This should capture all settings, but might need some exclusions to prevent the ZIP file growing too large.
Please leave your comments and experiences so we can improve this template over time.
I've been testing the DEM Edge Chromium Config File provided on the Avanite,com site.
My zip files average around 1,050kb, without extensions. Just bookmarks and light browsing...
Don't forget to setup the ADMX files and enable some of the features like Background Tab Freezing (TabFreezingEnabled) and Disabling Hardware Graphics.
Gotta keep that CPU load down!
Looks great so far!
Hey DNieroda - great to hear from you!
To answer your question, it depends if you are using it “Side by Side”. There is a policy to do this and if you retain the legacy Edge then you may want to keep it. If you haven’t installed in “Side by Side” mode then it should be safe to remove it. That said, it will depend on your configuration – for example, check the IE settings (eg. cookies/webcache etc) are being handled by a different part of the config.
I hope this helps, MissAvanite
Just for future reference:
If someone wants to include application token information, include the folder below:
<LocalAppData>\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default\Local Storage
Whats the status of this new template and is it working nicely?
I have to make a quick switch from IE and Chrome to the new Chromium based edge within our golden images and was hoping DEM is able to help me out here
As of Chrome version 85 the option RoamingProfileSupportEnabled is added to Edge. This would make it a lot easier to roam userdate using DEM, just like with Chrome.
I am implementing and testing right now....
That is fantastic news! The Edge Chromium's user based sync was a pain, as I always had to have the users login.
This will be an easier way to capture their favorite bar shortcuts!
Please let us know how it works out for you
I am testing the new browser and GPO settings.
Favorites and settings are saved and roaming nicely. Cookies however are not! Still looking how to roam those.
I had to enable the following GPO settings:
In DEM i have the following config:
After a user opens Edge, the following message is shown to the user telling the user he/she is automatically logged in to Edge.
If anyone has an idea on roaming cookies that would be nice.
I was having this issue and found the solution in another thread here somewhere (though can't find it now!).
Basically, add the following settings so cookies can be decrypted.
'Personal certificates - Appdata NOT redirected'
Hi mellicott Thanks for the info, but have you tested this using the new Chromium based Edge in combination with the setting "Enable using roaming copies for Microsoft Edge profile data"?
