This page provides instructions for configuring Microsoft Edge to run asset and user actions from Lansweeper.


To run asset and user actions from Lansweeper, Microsoft Edge needs to be configured. 

To learn more about creating actions, see Custom Actions.

Microsoft Edge is a Chromium-based web browser. Lansweeper has a Chromium extension that can be installed in browsers like Edge to allow for the execution of asset and user actions. As Lansweeper's Chromium extension is offered through the Chrome Web Store, you must first configure Edge to allow extensions from this store.

You must use version 79 or higher of Microsoft Edge, as these are Chromium-based versions. Older, non-Chromium-based versions of Edge are not supported for Lansweeper use.
Microsoft Edge must also be used on a Windows computer to run asset and user actions.

Install the Lansweeper Chromium extension

  1. Type "edge://extensions" in Edge's address bar, and press Enter. 
  2. Toggle the Allow extensions from other stores switch. In the pop-up, select Allow.
