Hello, I have a need to deploy chrome but ONLY for one website.  I've fought with the vendor but with time running out, I'm left with no choice but to deploy chrome.  My question are; I know I can create a Chrome shortcut switch that will launch the site in question but what switches can I use to stop it from asking to be the default browser?  or to save passwords?  I want to lock down chrome so that only this site can be opened if possible but not change the default browser from IE.  Does anyone have any suggestions or good switches to add to a chrome shortcut?  

(I know of --kiosk)

Hello,

I believe this can be accomplished by using the MSI version which is for Enterprises.  The article I am referencing is here.

First, you'll want to create a google account if you haven't already that can be used for the admin console.

Next, configure the preferences and policies as instructed on the link above.  Under preferences is where you can disable setting default browser and such.

I assume you won't need any extensions since this is a single site purpose, once the above are configured, roll it out to a test machine for evaluation and if all is well, roll it out to the other workstations.
