Furthermore, Edge developers have introduced the following new policies:

The browser should be updated automatically, but can also be downloaded from the Edge site.

Addendum: I received feedback from my German readers (see also the comment below), that Edge has PDF printing issues after upgrading to version 102. Currently only German readers are affected – didn't found international users who are reporting this. Therefore here is the link to my German follow up article Microsoft Edge 102.0.1245.30 erzeugt Fehler beim PDF-Drucken. Will write an English article, if I receive reports from international users.

There are also reports, that the Edge update creates Access violations or did not open (see here and here).

I've created a thread within teh english Edge Microsoft Answers forum. A Frensh administrator confirmed the issue too. And on Twitter I got this answer on my article:

Well… my entire org can't print PDFs, now. Not like we don't avg 10-20,000 prints per damn day or anything (load tags on shipments) und auf Nachfrage kam die Umgebung: Windows 11 Enterprise 22000.708 Language is English (Regional: English).

If you are affected, post also your Windows 10/11 Build in a comment. On Twitter I got the 2nd answer from the above admin:

Got a call from Microsoft support and they confirmed they know about this issue and the GPO setting is the "fix" for now and they are working on further mitigation and/or a patch. This IS related to the PDF security fixes put in place on this build…

The GPO settings are described within this comment in my German blog.

In our case, the GPO setting "Microsoft Edge / Print / Print via system print dialog box" had to be set to not configured, i.e. that the Edge print dialog box is displayed.

    Hallo! Hat noch jemand Probleme mit dem Druck von PDFs in dieser Version? "Überprüfen Sie den Drucker, und versuchen Sie es noch mal. Fehler beim Drucken."
    Ideen?

      Wrong language – there are several reports about that issue – I'm just starting writing a new blog post – will cross link it.

    Hello!

    I am from Canada and we are also having issues with pdf printing since upgrading to 102.0.1245.30.

    • Carson says:

      We're also from Canada and found that updating to this version of Edge makes is so we cannot print PDFs from Edge anymore.
      Just noticed it June 1/2022. While mine was on an older version, I was still able to print PDFs but as soon as I did the update to Edge, I couldn't anymore.

    This new version will no longer let me open Edge with my desired website at startup. (www.google.com) It only goes to the Microsoft focused news site. Irratating!
