Reset IE and Edge settings after User Log Off


  • Hi,

    Is there a way to 'reset' Internet Explorer and Edge via GPO each time the user logs off.

    I want to prevent the user from setting there own favorites, or save any passwords, cookies, zoom level etc etc.

    So that when the next person logs on using the account it is reset to our 'defaults' and it doesn't automatically login to another users ms account or gmail account or facebook etc!

  • Hi Jason,

    To achieve your goal, you could run reset script with schedule task when user logoff.

    For detailed information about script, you could refer to the article below.
