I would use the Export-DefaultAppAssociations Command....to export the default apps from a computer

you have configured to your liking.

Then use Import-DefaultAppAssociations...to import to all the computers you want,

This should be scriptable with the K1.

You should look at this link  ......

The solution akmagnum mentioned works in cases where a user has not yet logged in to that device and had a profile built.  Once a user's profile is built the only "Supported" method is to set default associations via domain policy.

Thanks, I can use above solution. 

I tried to mark it as answer but I am not sure if it is working. Or maybe I already did.
