Set the roaming profile directory

Configures the directory that Google Chrome will use for storing the roaming copy of the profiles.

If you set this policy, Google Chrome will use the provided directory to store the roaming copy of the profiles if the RoamingProfileSupportEnabled policy has been enabled. If the RoamingProfileSupportEnabled policy is disabled or left unset the value stored in this policy is not used.

See for a list of variables that can be used.

On non-Windows platforms, this policy must be set for roaming profiles to work.

On Windows, if this policy is left unset, the default roaming profile path will be used.

Example value: ${roaming_app_data}\chrome-profile

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
