Create Deploy Microsoft Edge Using SCCM – SCCM TP 1910

In SCCM technical preview 1910, you can create and deploy Microsoft Edge application. As per Microsoft you can deploy Microsoft Edge version 77 and later to your users. By the way the Configuration Manager Technical preview 1910 is released and take a look at new features here.

When I got to know that we can deploy Edge application using SCCM, I was excited to test the feature because prior to this I was unable to deploy Edge application using SCCM.

While creating the Edge application, the admins can pick either the Beta or Dev channel, along with a version of the Microsoft Edge client to deploy. To know more about Microsoft Edge insider channels, read this post.

Note – The Create Microsoft Edge application is a new feature introduced with SCCM technical preview 1910 . This feature is not available in current branch version yet. But I would love to see this feature in the upcoming SCCM 1910 release.

Why? Why would you want to do this? So many improvements could be made to SCCM like updating drivers and firmware. Create driver packs for specific models have the SCCM check the manufacturer for updates to those drivers. You can select which ones to update and then immediately deploy to existing equipment. Why not integrate Office Telemetry with SCCM? But now they are pushing everything to Azure account. Deploy a browser that is preinstalled on the OS.
