Prevent Microsoft Edge from gathering Live Tile information when pinning a site to Start

This policy lets you decide whether Microsoft Edge can gather Live Tile metadata from the ieonline.microsoft.com service to provide a better experience while pinning a Live Tile to the Start menu.

If you enable this setting, Microsoft Edge won't gather the Live Tile metadata, providing a minimal experience when a user pins a Live Tile to the Start menu.

If you disable or don't configure this setting, Microsoft Edge gathers the Live Tile metadata, providing a fuller and more complete experience when a user pins a Live Tile to the Start menu.
