Allow Address bar drop-down list suggestions

This policy setting lets you decide whether the Address bar drop-down functionality is available in Microsoft Edge. We recommend disabling this setting if you want to minimize network connections from Microsoft Edge to Microsoft services.

Note: Disabling this setting turns off the Address bar drop-down functionality. Therefore, because search suggestions are shown in the drop-down, this setting takes precedence over the "Configure search suggestions in Address bar" setting.

If you enable or don't configure this setting, employees can see the Address bar drop-down functionality in Microsoft Edge.

If you disable this setting, employees won't see the Address bar drop-down functionality in Microsoft Edge. This setting also disables the user-defined setting, "Show search and site suggestions as I type".
