  • Hello,

    You are welcome. Thank you so much for your feedback.

    According to our description, we would like to set Google Chrome home page on Windows 10 Pro, which is not domain joined. 

    I did the test on the non domain joined Win 10 computer and it seems that the group policy could show and we could configure the policies.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for posting in our TechNet forum.

    According to the provided MS document, Google Chrome home page could be set via group policies. Yes, it is only for domain joined devices. 

    If we would like to set the policies on workgroup, we could copy the Google policy ADMX file and ADML file to PolicyDefinitions folder under %systemroot%. 



    Then open the Local Group Policy to set the policies for non-domain joined devices. 



    For any question, please feel free to contact us.

  • Thanks Hannah for reply, appreciated your efforts.

    I have performed this already but none of the group policy takes effect for Chrome. When I searched it, somehow I came to know that on some blogs that Chrome should be running on networked /domain joined devices, this is why I asked here for confirmation. 
    I only want to set Google Chrome home page for all users on Windows 10 Pro (standalone).

  • Thanks again Hannah for testing this in your lab environment. 

    That's correct, I am able to set the Group Policy on local computer but it problem I am discussing, it's not applying (or setting the home page). This is the reason I was looking for and came to know it's application /functional if a PC is domain joined. Is this correct?

  • Exactly, so what I read on forums was correct, i.e. even we can have ADMX for local computer, the policy will not take effect for standalone PCs.

    I appreciate your testing and confirmation, otherwise, I would remain unsure if I am doing it wrong or if's not supported.

    Have a really wonderful day and shiny summer (if it's summer in your geo location :) ).
