How to deploy the templates
Warning: Do not deploy both ADM and ADMX templates. ADMX is preferred.

- Copy all the ADML files from /Configuration/admx/<language> to C:\windows\policydefinitions\<language>
- Start gpedit.msc to see the new policy under the single Google root
Legacy Browser Support (LBS)
If you have legacy web applications that require functionality not supported by Chrome (such as a site that requires ActiveX, Java, or Silverlight), you can still deploy Chrome as your default or secondary browser with the support of our Legacy Browser Support tool. It allows you to seamlessly access web pages in both Chrome and another browser. Learn more about Legacy Browser Support.
LBS requires 3 components:
- The LBS Extension must be force-installed to your users.
- You must deploy the MSI (/Installers/LegacyBrowserSupport_VERSION_en_x64.msi) or (/Installers/LegacyBrowserSupport_VERSION_en.msi).
- Add the LBS GPO Template & configure the policy to specify which URLs are to be opened in a legacy browser.
