HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Edge\URLWhitelist not respected

Contributor

On Chrome you can set URLWhitelist in the registry at the following (or HKLM):

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\URLWhitelist

 

I would presume the equivalent location for Edge is:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Edge\URLWhitelist

 

However, adding String Values under the key has no impact on Edge but works correctly on Chrome.

 

I am running Edge Stable.

@CodeDJ thanks for the question. I hope this helps explain it a bit for you. 

 

TL;DR; this is called an "allow list" not a "white list" in Microsoft products:
