4. Click the 'Apply' button on the 'Control Which Extensions are Installed Silently' window, followed by the 'OK' button to close the window

 

Part 2: Setting Up Your LibraryID on the System

 Step 4 - Tell Nomad your LibraryID to Allow It to be Automatically Detected

 1. Using the Group Policy Management Console (gpmc.msc) or another method, create the following registry key:

 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge\3rdparty\extensions\ aegommgkkknipcpebmcbepdapjdojiji\policy]

 The result should resemble the following:

 

2. Next, create a new ‘String Value’ called ‘libraryId’. This can be done using the following command line:

reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge\3rdparty\extensions\aegommgkkknipcpebmcbepdapjdojiji\policy" /v libraryId /t REG_SZ /d <ENTER YOUR LIBRARY ID> /f

However, you can also elect to do this manually, via the Group Policy Management Console, Regedit, and so on. Whatever you’re most comfortable working with!

 **IMPORTANT!!** - Please note that ‘libraryId’ has a capital ‘I’ in ID, and that this is case sensitive!

The result should look like the following:

 

Please be sure to replace the sample instructions ‘ENTER YOUR LIBRARY ID (e.g. 1234)’ with your actual libraryId.

Congratulations! LibKey Nomad is now managed and configured for Microsoft Edge using Windows Group Policy!
