This section describes how to utilize your Active Directory Group Policy Management, against Microsoft Edge templates, to deploy the Keeper Browser extension to all PCs in your organization. Please note this is a general guide.
On your domain controller, go to the Microsoft Edge Enterprise landing page to download the Microsoft Edge policy templates file (MicrosoftEdgePolicyTemplates.cab), by clicking on "Get Policy Files" and extract the contents to your desired location. Ex: C:\temp
2. Browse to the directory in which you saved the downloaded MicrosoftEdgePolicyTemplates.cab and open it.
3. Extract the contents of the MicrosoftEdgePolicyTemplates.zip file to your desired location. Ex: C:\temp
4. Now again, extract the extracted MicrosoftEdgePolicyTemplates.zip file to your desired location. Ex: C:\temp

Open Group Policy Manager on your domain controller and expand out your domain -> Group Policy Objects. If you currently do not have a Group Policy created in which you want to utilize for Edge Policies, proceed to right clicking on Group Policy Objects and create a New Policy.
2. Name the policy something relevant. Ex: “Edge Policy”
3. Once created, right click the new policy and select Edit.
4. Expand out Edge Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Microsoft Edge -> Extensions then Right click and Edit the “Control which extensions are installed silently”
5. Tick the Enable button, and then click the Show button.
6. Add the following text and click OK.
7. Click Apply, and then click OK
8. Disable Chrome's Built-In Password Manager by navigating to Microsoft Edge -> Password manager and protection and then Right click and Edit the “Enable saving passwords to the password manager”
9. Tick the "Disabled" button, and then click Apply, and then click OK.
10. Following the same process as steps 8 - 9, direct within Microsoft Edge Administrative Templates Policy definitions, Disable the Edge AutoFill capabilities by editing both "Enable AutoFill for addresses" and "Enable AutoFill for credit cards" and setting them to disabled.
11. Exit the Group Policy Management Editor, Right Click the OU of your choice, and select Link an Existing GPO.
12. Select the “Edge Policy” and click “OK”
For any PC within that OU, the “Edge Policy” will automatically install the Keeper Security Browser Extension, if Edge is installed on those PCs, as well as disable the Edge browser, less secure, built-in password manager and AutoFill capabilities.
On a target client device, open Microsoft Edge and navigate to edge://policy to see all policies that are applied. If you applied policy settings on the local computer, policies should appear immediately.
You may need to close and reopen Microsoft Edge before the new policies appear.
