When the group policy setting "Clear browsing data when Microsoft Edge closes" is enabled, it's not possible to specify what has to be cleared. All options are enabled.

is it possible to change that group policy in order to allow to choose items to clear ?

 

Kind regards,

I also found that these settings are store in preference file under :C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge Beta\User Data\Default

 

"clear_data":{"on_exit_succeeded":false},"clear_data_on_exit":{"browsing_history":true,"cache":true,"cookies":true,"download_history":true,"form_data":true,"hosted_apps_data":true,"passwords":true,"site_settings":true},

 

Is it possible to preset this setting using master_preference. What is the syntax ?
