Just in the last day or two our IT department has rolled out a new intranet for the organization (public library system) and all of the Windows based installations of Chrome have defaulted to the intranet home page at startup. That's all well and good; however, I use portable chrome on a USB drive specifically to keep my data from getting all mixed up with the Windows instance of chrome, and now my personal portable instance of chrome is ALSO getting the "managed by your organization" limitations, specifically:
* startup page is now the intranet page (I prefer it to be my notes app/to do list/project app)
* startup page/home page areas in my settings are grayed out and I can't change it
A different start-up page is not the end of the world, but I'd rather not have my IT department have any hooks into my personal instance of chrome. I'm not up to no-good, I'm just uncomfortable with it.
How are the Windows admin settings affecting my self-contained version of chrome? Is there any way to change this?
