The users in our domain use Roaming profiles. Unfortunately Google Chrome saves bookmarks in the Appdata/local folder.

This results in Chrome "forgetting" the set homepage & bookmarks every time a user relogs.

I downloaded the Chrome ADMX files for group policy but cannot find a way to redirect the appdata/local folder.

Does anyone know of a reliable way to redirect this folder, or atleast secure that Google Chrome does NOT forget the homepage/bookmarks every time a user relogs?

Thanks for the help!

Do you try Set user data directory policy?

It documented here

And there list of available path variables

In your case it is useful variable ${roaming_app_data}

  • Thanks for your comment Slipeer. Unfortunately I can not find the UserDataDir in the registry. Creating it myself does not help, unfortunately. I was hoping there is a policy to do this using the google Chrome ADMX files. – Kevv Nov 11 '16 at 12:09

    I found it! Download the Google ADMX files, go to administrative templates -> Google -> Google Chrome -> Set User Data Directory. – Kevv Nov 11 '16 at 12:12
