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).
