Intune Hyrbid – Setting Edge homepage on Windows 10 machine using configuration baseline

This post will show how to set the Edge browser homepage on a Windows 10 machine enrolled in an Intune Hybrid environment with ConfigMgr 1610. I will create a configuration item, add it to a baseline, and then deploy the baseline to my Intune user collection. For a guide on setting up hyrbrid MDM with ConfigMgr, see Setup hybrid mobile device management (MDM) with System Center Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune

In the ConfigMgr console, right click Configuration Items and select Create Configuration Item
