Set the new tab page as the home page

Configures the default home page in Microsoft Edge. You can set the home page to a URL you specify or to the new tab page.

If you enable this policy, the new tab page is always used for the home page, and the home page URL location is ignored.

If you disable this policy, the user's home page can't be the new tab page, unless the URL is set to 'edge://newtab'.

If not configured users can choose whether the new tab page is their home page.

This policy is available only on Windows instances that are joined to a Microsoft Active Directory domain, Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise instances that enrolled for device management, or macOS instances that are that are managed via MDM or joined to a domain via MCX.
