Chrome Browser Settings Now in Microsoft Intune Settings Catalog
Life just got a little easier for IT administrators who could set up Google Chrome for their users. As Microsoft employee Scott Been noted on Twitter, Chrome browser settings are now available in the Intune Settings Catalog.
Google Chrome browser settings on Windows are now available in the Intune Settings Catalog (but obviously you need to use @MicrosoftEdge). Good work @MikeDanoski and a nameless but amazing dev. pic.twitter.com/XZTRSnLS13

For those unfamiliar, the Intune Settings Catalog lists all the settings an IT admin can configure for a macOS or Windows 10 and Windows 11 installations, all in one place. It is intended to simplify creating a policy and how settings can be added. This latest Catalog Settings Policy for Chrome is the work of Mike Danoski, Senior Product Manager at Microsoft, along with several other developers.
There are many settings options available that can be tried. The last includes default settings, default search providers, password managers, printing, security settings. Feedback has been great on Twitter, so much so that people want a similar option for Firefox. So, if you are an IT administrator, try it now!
