Automatic Chrome opening on session start - windows 10

If you are an IT administrator looking to have Google Chrome launch automatically on start up, there are a few steps you can take to make this happen. This process will work for Windows 10, with the latest version of Chrome.

First, open your Chrome browser and click on the three dots in the upper right corner to access the settings menu. In the settings menu, scroll down to the bottom and select “Advanced”. This will open a new window with a list of options. Scroll down to the bottom of the list and select “Startup”. This will open a new window with two options: “Open a specific page or set of pages” and “Continue where you left off”. Select the first option, “Open a specific page or set of pages”.

This will open a new window with a text box. In this text box, you can enter the URL of the page that you want to open when Chrome launches. This could be the home page of your company’s intranet, or any other website that you want to open on startup. Once you have entered the URL, click “Add”. This will add the URL to the list of pages that will open when Chrome launches.

Once you have added the page that you want to open on startup, you can close the settings menu. Now, you need to add Chrome to the list of programs that launch on startup. To do this, open the Windows 10 Start menu and type “Task Scheduler”. Open the Task Scheduler application and select “Create Basic Task”.

In the Create Basic Task window, enter a name for the task, such as “Chrome Startup”. Select “When the computer starts” as the trigger for the task. Select “Start a program” as the action for the task. In the “Program/script” box, enter “C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe”. Click “Next” and then click “Finish”.

Now, when you restart your computer, Chrome will launch automatically. You can also open Chrome manually at any time by clicking the icon on the Windows 10 taskbar.

This process is relatively simple and should allow IT administrators to have Chrome open automatically on startup. With this process, you can ensure that employees have access to the company intranet or any other website that you choose when they start their computers. This can be a useful tool to help ensure that everyone is on the same page.
