Windows – How to disable JavaScript in Microsoft Edge

javascriptmicrosoft-edgewindows 10

The new Settings menu for Microsoft Edge does not seem to contain a way of disabling JavaScript. Going through Internet Options and disabling Active Scripting turns of JavaScript for IE11, but does not have an effect on Microsoft Edge.

Is there a way to disable JavaScript on the Microsoft Edge browser?
