I have received some question on how to set language on Edge after it is deployed with Intune.
When Edge is deployed to the end users devices or if the end user had installed it them self. Then you may as a IT admin setup the UI language for your end user.
It is possible with a administrative template profile from Intune, you can setup UI language and speel checking, you can combine those to options or configure them separate. In this blog post I will configure both settings for the same device group.

Language is always a mess that many international companies is struggling with – and language setting in the browser is no exception. That is the main reason for me to create this blog post with a walk trough guide.

 

Creating the profile in Intune:

Start Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center

  1. Click Devices
  2. Click Windows

Change UI language Edge from Intune - 01

  1. Click Configuration profiles
  2. Click Create profile

Change UI language Edge from Intune - 02

  1. Enter a name for the profile : “Edge UI Language DA”
  2. Select Platform : Windows 10 and later
  3. Select Profile type : Administrative Templates

Create the profile

Change UI language Edge from Intune - 03

  1. Click Settings
  2. Select Edge version 77 and later from the drop down list
  3. Search set appl
  4. Select application locale

Depending on your scenario you can choose either device or user to receive this settings  in my case I want the device wide setting, so all end users on the devices have the setting.

Change UI language Edge from Intune - 08

Now you are ready to deploy the profile to your devices.

After the policy applies to the device you will be able to see it in the registry under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge

ApplicationLocaleValue = da

spell 01

For the spelling setting you can find it here :

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge\SpellCheckLanguage

spell 02

 


How does it look like from the end users perspective:

 

Edge UI change to danish in this case and you can see it in setting part of Edge

Edge language da

The end user can also enter edge;//policy in the address bar to see what policies that applies to the browser

Edge language da - 01
