The Chrome Browser for the enterprise bundle includes a sample property list (.plist) file that you can customize to define policy settings. You then convert this file to a configuration profile that can be deployed to your user's devices.
Create a configuration profile
- Download the Chrome Browser bundle for Windows zip file. This file contains both Windows and Mac configuration files.
- Open the bundle and go to the Configuration folder.
- Make a copy of the com.google.Chrome.plist file.
This MCX .plist (property list) example file contains a sub-set of policies that you can customize for your deployment.
- Open the .plist file in your preferred editor.

- Make your required changes and save the file.
