How-to: Push stable version of Microsoft Edge with Intune

Microsoft has released a stable version of the new Edge Browser. Currently in Microsoft Intune it is only possible to deploy the Beta- & Dev-release of the browser with the default application deployment set.


My expectation is that the stable / GA version will follow shortly in the beginning of 2020.
The Stable-release currently is the same version as the beta, but without the branding.

  2. Run the online installer: MicrosoftEdgeSetup.exe (So we can get the offline installer)
