Is there a way of setting the behaviour of "Page Layout" in New Tab Page via GPO or registry?

Brass Contributor



I am preparing the deployment of Microsoft Edge (Chromium), I've downloaded the MSI and GPO templates and have started going through them. I've set everything I pretty much need to but have hit a hiccup which I'm hoping for some clarity on. 


I wish to set the "Page Layout" on "New Tab Page" to "Custom" and to show the following:

- Show quick links (Enabled)

- Image of the day (Disabled)

- Content (Content off)

- Search Bar (To use Google instead of Bing)

There does not appear to be a policy for changing this behaviour, for the moment I have just set "New Tab Page" to load up "" but would prefer the custom new tab page as stated above.


Is functionality supposed to be enabled in v79 or v80 (beta)? Or is this something for future development?


Thanks in advance,
