Trying to add "AutoOpenFileTypes" in the Registry Editor for Chrome (Windows 10 Pro)
0
I've tried every possible way to add "AutoOpenFileTypes" in the Registry Editor for Chrome and I have Windows 10 Pro, but I can not get pdfs to automatically open. Can you please help?


I've tried creating a New String Value and New Multi-String Value, with all the different suggested ways here -https://chromeenterprise.google/policies/?policy=AutoOpenFileTypes but nothing I have tried will work.

Hi Eric,
 
Thanks for reaching out to the Chrome Enterprise Help Community!

Could you verify that you haven't included the leading separator while listing the file type? For instance, you may have to list "pdf" instead of ".pdf".

If you have this policy set to enabled, try and see if setting it to disabled helps.

Please keep me posted.

Best,
Brad

I've got it set up on my dev computer, and it works! However, I'm working on a store PC (same Chrome version, same WIndows 10 Pro version) and it's not working even with a complete 1:1 copy/paste of my Google/Chrome policies in the Registry Editor (and restart). I'm trying to compare and contrast the PCs reg files (like the entire SOFTWARE policies reg file and maybe others) to see what could possibly be blocking Chrome from automatically opening the PDFs.

Brad- are there any possible conflicting policies that you can think of? I'm not able to figure out why it's not working on the store PC
