Steps to reproduce

I set the “Configure search suggestions in Address bar” policy, but it is ignored.
https://getadmx.com/?Category=Windows_10_2016&Policy=Microsoft.Policies.MicrosoftEdge::AllowSearchSuggestionsinAddressBar

A registry of the policy looks like the correct path, but Microsoft Edge seems to be loading the wrong path. (Software\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\Main)

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open Group Policy Editor. Go to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Microsoft Edge and set the GPO “Configure search suggestions in Address bar” to be “Disabled”.
  2. Open Edge and show “Advanced settings”.

Expected: The “Show search and site suggestions as I type” setting should be disabled and grayed out.
