Profile Management

Google Chrome browser

To provide a seamless user experience, Profile Management synchronizes each user’s entire profile between the system it is installed on and the user store. As a result, Google Chrome users might experience slow logons or logoffs. This issue occurs because some files associated with Google Chrome can grow large.

To improve the user experience with Google Chrome, do the following:

  1. Add the following folder to the list of folders to mirror:
    • AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
  2. Exclude the following folders from synchronizing:
    • Appdata\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache
    • Appdata\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\JumpListIconsMostVisited
    • Appdata\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\JumpListIconsRecentClosed
    • AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Media Cache
  3. Exclude the following files from synchronizing:
    • AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Favicons
    • AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\History
    • AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Preferences
    • The files unrelated to bookmarks in the AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default folder

We recommend that you use the Profile streaming feature if you experience slow logons or logoffs. For more information, see Stream user profiles.
