    Unpin or remove Edge shortcut from desktop for all users


    Hi Experts, I am working on creating a image for windows 10 20H2 using native method, in this one of the requirement is remove edge browser shortcut from desktop. before i used below mentioned registry changes and it worked. "reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer /v "DisableEdgeDesktopShortcutCreation" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f" - created a bat file and ran this and it solved the issue. but now this option is not working so i have checked and found a new registry for fixing this and even that is not working "reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\EdgeUpdate /V "CreateDesktopShortcutDefault" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f" i tried the same way using bat or PowerShell but nothing is working still i am seeing the edge shortcut in the desktop still. tried creating new user profile also and still the same issue. Kindly suggest how to get this fixed. Thanks Bala

    :)

    Create desktop shortcuts to websites with Edge

    If I'm shopping away in IE and create a shortcut to that webpage on the desktop from IE, if I haven't cleared my cache, it remembers the stuff in my cart for the IE shortcut (for as long as the cookie is good, not just a shopping cart but other similar pages).
    I can't do this in Edge unless I create a Favorite for it IN Edge. Then there is no nice quick link from my desktop, I have to open Edge and select the Favorite. Used this many times with IE desktop links when Black Friday shopping.

    Point is it's annoying because Microsoft wants Edge to be the default browser but then the Microsoft employee on here responds with the suggestion to send it to IE to create a Desktop shortcut. I'm using Edge on my Android phone and I can send a shortcut
    for a webpage to the Android Launcher - but I can't do the same with Edge on my Windows 10 computer?

    It is a very basic task that should not require multiple steps of opening another application to create a desktop shortcut is the point I think of the OP.

    Microsoft Edge Shortcut on Desktop?

    How do I put a SHORTCUT on the DESKTOP for Edge?

    I know it's on the task bar but that is very small and some things I like to have large easy to hit icons on the desktop.

    Under all previous versions of Windows ( well back a long way anyway ) you could right click on an entry in the Programs list and put a shortcut on the Desktop.

    No more.

    Can't do that anymore.

    <removed>

    Why <removed> did they take away the ability to put shortcuts on the Desktop and how do they get those shortcuts on the Desktop that are there?
