1.58 Ensure 'Configure Related Matches in Find on Page' is set to 'Disabled'


This policy setting specifies how the user receives Related Matches in Find on Page, which provides spellcheck, synonyms, and Q&A results in Microsoft Edge.

Note: Disabling this setting still allows users can receive related matches in Find on Page on limited sites. The results are processed on the user's device instead of a cloud service.

The recommended setting for this policy is Disabled.


Sharing a user's browsing and search history to a cloud service could inadvertently expose data. Due to privacy concerns, data should never be sent to any 3rd party.


Users will not see all suggestions for better matches found in page, only from limited sites.


To establish the recommended configuration via GP, set the following UI path to Disabled:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Edge\Configure Related Matches in Find on Page

Note: This Group Policy path may not exist by default. It is provided by the Group Policy template MSEdge.admx/adml that can be downloaded from: Download Microsoft Edge for Business - Microsoft.

Default Value:

Enabled. (Users can receive Related Matches in Find on Page on all sites. The results are processed in a cloud service.)
