Hello, @wjc_py 


Yes there is, with the policy file you can configure it.
first you need to download the policy files from here:


And then use this Policy:


Auto-update check period override
Microsoft Edge Update and later

If enabled, this policy lets you set a value for the minimum number of minutes between automatic update checks. Otherwise, by default, auto-update checks for updates every 10 hours.

If you want to disable all auto-update checks, set the value to 0 (not recommended).



Windows information and settings
Group Policy (ADMX) info
GP unique name: AutoUpdateCheckPeriodMinutes
GP name: Auto-update check period override
GP path: Administrative Templates/Microsoft Edge Update/Preferences
GP ADMX file name: edgeupdate.admx
Windows Registry Settings
Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\EdgeUpdate
Value Name: AutoUpdateCheckPeriodMinutes
Value Type: REG_DWORD
Example value:

That's all fine but what about machines that are not in a domain?  Is there a way with local policies or registry edits to disable the prompts to upgrade Edge?
