in Computer Configuration, I have 3 set of policies

but in User Configuration, I only have 2 set of policies, 1 is missing which is "Microsoft Edge Update"

 

why?

this is a non-domain-joined computer and I need it to be in User Configuration to modify auto-update settings, Not in Computer Configuration.

The updater is only on a per computer basis, not a per user.  Basically, you can push policy to the machine, but not to individual users on the same machine.  Is there a particular use case that you could tell us more about?

Hi,
I'm on Windows 10 pro (Workgroup), using Edge insider Canary. I want to use that group policy to increase the update cycle period and make it more frequent, say like every 20 minutes.

when I modify that group policy, it doesn't effect my Edge browser. i can tell it by checking
edge://policy/
and there is no update policy being applied to the browser.
only group policy configurations set in User Configuration are applied to my browser, nothing from Computer configuration.
