Installing Web Browser Extensions Using Group Policy

To install web browser extensions via group policy you must install the protocol application with INSTALLWEBBROWSEREXTENSIONS="" parameter:


If you install the protocol application without the INSTALLWEBBROWSEREXTENSIONS="" parameter before installing web browser extensions, web browser extensions may appear as disabled.

To install web browser extensions using group policy follow the instructions below: 

  1. Unzip the file and copy the .admx files and the en-US folder to the %systemroot%\PolicyDefinitions folder on your Active Directory or RDS host.

  2. On the Active Directory host, open the Group Policy Management Editor.

    On an individual RDS host, you can open the Local Group Policy Editor with the gpedit.msc utility.

  3. Go to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Install IT Hit Browser Extensions.

  4. Go to every policy with the extension and enable it.
