Hello,

We are working on a new deployment for adblock plus for edge chromium , how can we disable the first run page for our end users?
The methode for Google chrome (reg key) is not working.

Thanks

I assume that you're referring to those instructions. If so, can you provide more details about the edits that you've made to the registry?

yes we did mean those registry settings. Because they don't work with Edge Chromium, we have removed them again. Are there options just like Google Chrome to suppress the first run page?

According to MDN, Edge 79+ should support managed storage, which is the web extension feature that's used for exposing such configuration options. However, while there are various Edge policies for managing extensions (see also detailed guide), there doesn't appear to be any documentation about how to configure them.

That being said, I found two posts that indicate that it is possible, so you may want to have a look at those:

We just tried 2 things

The first registry key below isnt working, we thought we have to use the GUID from the Edge chromium extensions store. that we also used to force the installation.
The second registry key seems to work now, but had a extension GUID that we don't understand.

1.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKLM\Software\Policies\Chromium\3rdparty\extensions\gmgoamodcdcjnbaobigkjelfplakmdhh\policy]
"suppress_first_run_page" = dword:0000001

2.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKLM\Software\Policies\Chromium\3rdparty\extensions\cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb\policy]
"suppress_first_run_page" = dword:0000001

We just tried the registry key with 2 extension GUIDS. One from the edge chromium store that we use to force the installation at first run. The other one from the website you mentioned before. Both of them doesnt work.

I'm also having the same issue.

I've tried to create some reg key similar to Chrome but still showing the first welcome page after the installation
