Change Chrome Settings


Recommended Posts

I know that in firefox there's this file prefs.js or whatever it is, that holds preferences such as that one, maybe for chrome there's something similar? Then it's a question of opening the file, read the line, compare to that, and change accordingly. :)

Download the Google Chrome Group Policy Templates from here: https://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-templates

Look in ...\Policy_Templates\Windows\Examples\chrome.reg for settings to control a number of built-in Chrome settings for example:

"DefaultPopupsSetting"=dword:00000001 - Disables all Popups(Requires Chrome restart I believe)
"DefaultPopupsSetting"=dword:00000002 - Enables all Popups (Requires Chrome restart I believe)



You can also use per user settings by using HKEY_CURRENT_USER in place of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

As Careca mentioned there is a %LocalAppData\Google\Chrome\UserData\Default\Preferences file that you can modify (its a json file) but I could never get the settings to change while Chrome was open, so used the registry settings.
