Microsoft will adds new enterprise features to Edge 85

According to Microsoft, enterprise users have been complaining about the release timetable transparency for Microsoft Edge.

In conclusion, they announced that from now on, they will publish the future releases of Microsoft Edge enterprise features on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap portal.

They also started publishing the new Microsoft Edge release schedule for Beta & Stable channel on Microsoft docs.

That’s how we found out about the most exciting enterprise features for the next Edge releases.

What are the next enterprise features in Edge 85?

Preview version of Enterprise Site List Manager for Internet Explorer Mode

With the new Microsoft Edge 85, you will be able to experience a preview version of the Enterprise Mode Site List Manager  that will be available through an edge: management page under the sitelistmanager.

You will be able to use the page to create, edit and export your site list XML for Internet Explorer Mode on Edge. As an Administrator, you can choose to make this available through policy.

Policy for admins to opt which file types are exempted from file-type security warnings

Beginning with Microsoft Edge 85, Administrators will be able to specify which file types can be excluded from download file-type-based security warnings using a new group policy.

The policy is titled: ExemptDomainFileTypePairsFromFileTypeDownloadWarnings

Group Policy support for trusting site+application combos to launch without confirmation

Edge 85 adds group policy support to allow Administrators add site+app combos that are trusted to launch without confirmation.

Administrators will be able to configure trusted protocol/origin combinations for their end-users to block the confirmation prompt when navigating to a URL containing an app protocol.

Policies to allow admins to opt which file types to open automatically after downloading

Administrators will be able to set a Policy to allow a list of extensions to automatically open. This Policy will set those extensions to use the default automatically open files of this type list.

Send to OneNote is now available for Edge Collections

In Edge 85, you’ll be able to send content to Word, Excel, and OneNote on a Mac, for both MSA and AAD.

Microsoft Edge: Storage Access API

If the browser‘s configuration blocks allowing storage from a user, the Storage Access API will allow access to first-party storage in a third-party context.

All these features will be added in the next version of Microsoft Edge which. according to the new schedule, will be added for the Beta Channel in the week of 07-27-2020 and a month later in the Stable Channel.
