Setting Chrome Browser Policy on Altered PC's
Applicable to Chrome browsers under Windows, Mac and Linux. For IT administrators who want to use local utilities to define Chrome policy on enterprise machines, this page is designed for IT administrators. Once Chrome Browser has been deployed on your users' company machines, you can use your favorite local enforcement tool to apply policy to those machines.
You can use Windows Group Policy or your favorite Mac or Linux config utility. Allows you to define policy at the appliance layer that applies regardless of whether individuals are using the Chrome browser, logged into an account-based login, or not. At the operating system layer, you can define guidelines that are valid when certain concurrent endpoints are logged on to the machine.
Now you can enforces guidelines that cannot be changed by the user. Opmerking: To view the full Chrome guidelines listing, find the common/ directory in the guidelines template zipped files (available in all the languages supported). There are two kinds of Windows rule templates: an ADM template and an ADMX template. They show which registration keys you can specify to define Chrome and which allowed levels.
The Chrome utility looks at the value specified in these keys to see how you behave. You can find the Windows template and general guideline documents for all Windows platforms here: Browse to Local Computer Policies > Computer Configuration > Administrative templates. Right click Administrative Styles and choose Add/Remove Styles.
Append the chrome. adm template via the dialogue. Open the newly added template in the Group Policy Editor and modify the configurations. Most frequently amended directives are: Specify the home page - The url that Chrome opens when a visitor starts the web browser when they click the Home icon.
Use the guidelines on the destination machine. This may take some getting around the propagation of the directive, or you may need to distribute these directives using administrative utilities, which depends on the way your firewall is configured. On the Mac, Chrome guidelines are described in a platinum (Property List) filename. Locate the resource directory.
See Quickstart for the Chrome Browser (Mac) for information about the set-up process.
