I have followed the below link to the set the home page in chrome browser. I have tested in my environment, it worked fine as expected.
Thanks for your continues support as always.
Very much appreciated.
How consistent are you Chrome versions? I recall that the way of defining the home page changed heavily several times in the past. Do you experience this for all your systems?
Also – and I hope I am not wrong – Chrome deployment on Windows PC is not always straightforward. I personally use the offline installer (.msi). Which deployment option did you use?
Current chrome version is 80.1.( has auto update setting ).
yes, the plan is to set home page in PCs and we have started doing testing now. No settings applied in past.
yes, we also use offline installer to install chrome.
I have followed the given link to set the home page which didn’t work as expected.

I have gone through one of your link – https://www.anoopcnair.com/manage-chrome-in-windows-from-intune-oma-uri/
And got to know there are other 2 methods ( option 2 and 3 ) to manage chrome browser using intune.
I have already tried option 1, no luck.
Option 2 and 3 would that support in setting home page in chrome browser ? Not sure its use cases.
1 Managing Chrome Browser via OMA-URIs using ‘Chrome – ADMX’
2 Making use of Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG)
3 Using an Applocker xml for the browser
Is there any risk in using option 2 and 3 and recommended by MS team ?
Please advise, Thanks for helping me on this issue.
