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.
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.
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.
Steps to configure Startup page and Home page in Edge through Device Configuration profile
From Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center, select Devices blade > Configuration policies and click on Create profile
Select the following options in Create a Profile section and then click on Create
- Platform: Windows 10 and later
- Profile type: template
- Template Name: Administrative templates
Enter a Profile name and click on Next
Go to the Configuration settings, select Computer Configuration/Microsoft Edge/Startup, home page and new tab page
Select Configure the home page URL , select Enabled and Enter home page URL
Select Show Home button on toolbar , select Enabled
Select Action to take on startup
Click on Enabled
Select Open a list of URLs in Action to take on startup list
Select Sites to open when the browser starts
Ener the site URLs and click on Ok. You can add multiple Startup page URLs here.
Click on Next twice to move to Assignments page and assign the profile to All Devices or AD Group to limit the scope as per your requirements.
Click on Next, review the settings and confirm to create Device configuration profile.
The Device configuration profile is now created. You can validate the same from Device | Configuration profiles blade.
