Firefox isn't manageable by GPO though - I seem to recall there's a repackaged version that comes with some policy templates, but not FF*. Which is daft, as without the ability to lock down a browser, not many enterprises are going to push it out...

Apologies, I thought FF also had ADM templates.

Thought i would reawaken this thread.
I am pushing Chrome out and on my test machine all is fine. Althought I cant seem to see a way of disabling the signin to google feature, either in the options menu or the first launch page.
cant see an easy way online after a quick search. has anyone done this? can you point me in the correct direction?

In GPO: Google > Google Chrome > Restrict which users are allowed to sign in to Google Chrome = "*@makeupadummydomain.something"

I'm probably being really stupid here but how do I install the ADML file in the group policy management console?

Your ADMX file is copied (just in Windows Explorer) into C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions. In that folder there is a language folder, more than likely called en-US on your system. Copy the ADML file in there. Done!

Must be something I'm doing wrong.
If I copy an old ADMX file into \sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions\ it works fine.
But if I copy the ADML file into \sysvol\domain\Policies\PolicyDefinitions\en-US\ I get nothing.
EDIT: Nevermind, just found the ADMX at the bottom of the zip file. You need to copy that and the ADML at the same time.

Great, just got this all working.
Chrome is now available across our entire school!

Is it possible to export Chrome settings to a .reg file?
Turns out, we'd get 0 support from RM if I push everything out with GPO settings. [Because "[censored] you, we're RM. Use registry settings, GPO is hard."]
I've been looking through this and it mentions that the Google GPOs are registry settings. But I can't find them on my test machine.

virtually all gpo settings ARE registry settings its just a better way of changing them on mass than firing out reg files so altering the gpo for say verbose startup messages just ticks the enable verbose messsages feature in that pcs registry

I know... but I have to add a custom registry file to the RM management console if I want them to actually support it.

Looks like the settings are stored in HKLM\Software\Policies\Google\Chrome:
That's the reg equivalent of what I have set by GPO, which you've seen.
