Dear all, is there a way that can disable edge’s auto upgrade? Sometimes I don’t want it updated to new version. Thanks

Hello, @wjc_py 

 


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

https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/enterprise

 

And then use this Policy:


AutoUpdateCheckPeriodMinutes


Auto-update check period override
Microsoft Edge Update 1.2.145.5 and later


Description
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).
