Overview of Enterprise Policies

Startup, Home page and New Tab page


Configure the pages to load on startup, the default home page and the default new tab page in Chromium and prevents users from changing them.

The user's home page settings are only completely locked down if you either select the home page to be the new tab page, or set it to be a URL and specify a home page URL. If you don't specify the home page URL, then the user is still able to set the home page to the new tab page by specifying 'chrome://newtab'.

The policy 'URLs to open on startup' is ignored unless you select 'Open a list of URLs' in 'Action on startup'.

Remote access


Configure remote access options in Chrome Remote Desktop host.

Chrome Remote Desktop host is a native service that runs on the target machine that a user can connect to using Chrome Remote Desktop application.The native service is packaged and executed separately from the Chromium browser.

These policies are ignored unless the Chrome Remote Desktop host is installed.

Proxy server


Allows you to specify the proxy server used by Chromium and prevents users from changing proxy settings.

If you choose to never use a proxy server and always connect directly, all other options are ignored.

If you choose to auto detect the proxy server, all other options are ignored.

For detailed examples, visit: https://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/network-settings#TOC-Command-line-options-for-proxy-sett.
