Chrome Extension Enable Incognito Using GPO

Is it possible to update the extension settings to allow Incognito and file access for multiple machines?

Issue Description: How to enable Incognito mode and file access for the extension on a larger scale for multiple machines?

Root Cause: Extensions are not allowed to be enforced by the administrators in Incognito, where as users can individually enable extensions in Incognito mode.


This option is not available from the installer nor from the SetupExtensions parameters.

This limitation is intentionally imposed by Google. Unfortunately, there is not a GPO for this. The user needs to manually allow an extension to run in incognito mode.

However, as an alternative, automate this by using a Robot to open chrome://extensions in the browser, click on extension Details and toggle the needed option.
