Start managing Chrome Browser
This page is for administrators who manage Chrome Browsers on Windows®, Mac®, or Linux® computers.
As an IT admin for a business or school, you can deploy Chrome Browsers to users across Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. You can then manage 200+ policies that govern people's use of Chrome, such as the apps and extensions they can use, data security and privacy, their browsing experience, and more.

See basic steps for deploying Chrome Browser on corporate computers.
Install MSI (Windows) and policy templates
Chrome Enterprise provides all the files you need to install and manage Chrome Browsers on corporate devices (Windows, Mac, and Linux):
- Microsoft Installer (MSI) for installing Chrome Browser on managed Windows computers
- Administrative templates for configuring corporate policies on managed computers (Windows, Mac, Linux)
- Chrome Legacy Browser Support (LBS) extension
Set device-level policies on premise
After Chrome Browser is installed on your users’ corporate computers, you can set policies that apply for anyone who uses those devices. These device-level policies apply whether or not people are using Chrome Browser or signed in to any account. As an admin, you can enforce policies that user's cannot modify. And you can deploy default preferences that users can change.
Use your preferred on-premise method to set policies and default preferences, including:
- Windows Group Policy
- Windows Registry or master_preferences file
- Preferred configuration tool for Mac configuration files or JSON files (Linux)
Manage user-level policies from the cloud
If you have access to the Google Admin console, such as with a G Suite account, you can manage user-level policies from the cloud. These policies apply when users are signed in to their corporate Chrome profile on any Chrome Browser or device running Chrome OS, including personal computers when they're away from work.
Support legacy browser apps
Your organization can take advantage of Chrome Browser while still easily accessing older websites and apps that require Internet Explorer. Just deploy the Chrome legacy browser extension. When users click links in the Chrome Browser that instead require a legacy browser, the URL automatically opens in the legacy browser.
