How to Configure Edge Chromium Homepage & Startup Page Using Intune

Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Intune) Device Configuration profiles allow you to add and configure settings, and then push these settings to devices in your organization.

In this post, we will create a Device configuration profile in Microsoft Intune to set Home page and Startup page in Microsoft Edge. Before we go ahead, let’s understand the difference between Home page and Startup page.

What is Startup Page in Microsoft Edge

By default, the page that automatically loads whenever you launch Microsoft Edge is the Microsoft start page. You can add multiple startup pages and they all become available when you launch Edge.

What is Homepage in Microsoft Edge

The Microsoft Edge home page is only opened when you click on Home button in tool bar. By default, Home page button is not visible and you need to enable that from settings.
