Use New Tab Page as homepage

Configures the type of the default home page in Google Chrome and prevents users from changing home page preferences. The home page can either be set to a URL you specify or set to the New Tab Page.

If you enable this setting, the New Tab Page is always used for the home page and the home page URL location is ignored.

If you disable this setting, the user's homepage will never be the New Tab Page, unless its URL is set to 'chrome://newtab'.

If you enable or disable this setting, users cannot change their homepage type in Google Chrome.

Leaving this policy not set will allow the user to choose whether the new tab page is his home page on his own.

This policy is not available on Windows instances that are not joined
to an Active Directory domain.
