Set user data directory

Configures the directory that Google Chrome will use for storing user data.

If you set this policy, Google Chrome will use the provided directory regardless whether the user has specified the '--user-data-dir' flag or not.

See https://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-list-3/user-data-directory-variables for a list of variables that can be used.

If this policy is left not set the default profile path will be used and the user will be able to override it with the '--user-data-dir' command line flag.

Supported on: Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or later
