This post shows two ways to disable the surf game on the Edge browser. Pick the one you prefer.

I’m using Windows 11 PC here. Let’s start.

How to Disable Surf Game on Microsoft Edge using Local Group Policy Editor

Launch local group policy editor.

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

Select Disabled.

Hit the OK button.

That’s all.

How to Disable Surf Game 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 the Enter key.

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

Select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.

Type AllowSurfGame and then hit the Enter key.

That’s it.

Note: To enable it, provide 1 in the Value data field of the DWORD or delete the DWORD you created earlier.

Thanks for reading.
