Please look into the installer for non-admins.

 

In enterprise we make use of Applocker to stop standard users launching unapproved software and a few years ago stopped Cryptolocker from executing on our machines.

 

When elevating the installer using an admin account Edge will only install for the admin user.

 

Then multiple path rules are needed in Applocker to allow Edge to work, this is not the case with the Chrome Enterprise installer

Thank you for taking the time to bring this to us. I apologize for the lateness of this response. This is a great suggestion. I will be relaying it to the Product team for their consideration.
