How to Enable or Disable Printing on Microsoft Edge

In this post, you’ll see two different ways to disable printing on the Edge browser. Select the method you like.

Here, I’m using Windows 11 PC. Let’s start.

How to Disable Printing on Microsoft Edge using Local Group Policy Editor

Launch local group policy editor.

Navigate to the Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Edge > Printing.

Then double-click “Enable printing” in the right pane.

Select Disabled.

Hit the OK button.

That’s all.

Note: To enable it, follow the steps above but select Enabled or Not Configured.

How to Disable Printing on Microsoft Edge using Registry Editor

Open Registry Editor. I suggest a Registry backup before proceeding.

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Policies > Microsoft > Edge.

If you don’t see the Edge key mentioned above, you need to create it, and here’s how: Right-click on the Microsoft key and select New > Key. Type Edge and then press Enter key.

Right-click on the blank space in the right pane.

Select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.

Type PrintingEnabled and then hit the Enter key.

That’s it.

Note: To enable it, replace 0 with 1 in the Value data field of the DWORD and then hit the OK button or delete the DWORD you created earlier.

Thanks for reading.
