While testing Microsoft Edge Stable 98.0.1108.55 with the appropriate ADMX/ADML packages active, I am unable to DISABLE the Microsoft Edge Insider Promotion subpanel on the About Microsoft Edge settings panel. We would like to have this subpanel hidden before we deploy Edge Version 98.0.1108.55 to our general user population. This GPO generates the MicrosoftEdgeInsiderPromotionEnabled REG DWORD value with disabled setting of 0x00000000 as plainly displayed in a Regedit session in Key:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge or HKCU\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge
This setting was applied in both a Windows 10 Pro x86 PC and Windows 10 Enterprise x64 (Domain controlled VDI session) without success. The Microsoft Edge Insider Promotion subpanel still is always displayed. I was unable to test in a Windows Server 2016 Domain-controlled terminal server system yet.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.

An update to Version 98.0.1108.56 this morning has NOT resolved the issue. The Promotion for Microsoft Edge Insider is still showing on the "About Microsoft Edge" panel. While few if any of our company users actually look at the "About Microsoft Edge" settings panel, we would like to suppress this promotion as it is offered in the GPO setting, if anything just to successfully use the GPO now.

@ChevITGuy Hey there! Apologies on the late response here, but I wanted to hop in and let you know that the team is investigating this now. As a callout, I do want to note that Edge 99 is moving into our Stable channel this week, so I would appreciate it if you let me know how things look once you receive the update. I can give the team your updated status at that point so they understand if they still need to dig into this.
Thanks for flagging the issue! I will circle back once I hear from the team on next steps for us. :)

Thanks so much for acknowledging this work by me and others. I look forward to testing this GPO in Microsoft Edge Version 99.
All the Best!
