Group Policy for MS Edge to set a homepage but, allow users to change it. Like GPP Registry
Currently, there is a GPO that would allow admin to set a homepage for MS EDGE, this however locks down the users ability to change the homepage.
When you zoom in to the registry where the homepage is set, it has a warning: It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy
Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\Protected - It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify. See aka.ms/browserpolicy]
So, many control environments may want to set a different URL to be the default homepage but want to allow users to change it later on and right now, there is an out of the box way.
You can hack the registry and push and export of what you want from a preset client machine, but there are concerns the way we label the registry with that warning "It is a violation of Windows Policy to modify."

I would upvote this as well. The ability to set a default homepage via GPO already exists and that is good but the ability enforce a default but allow the user to change it if they wish would be more useful.
