I know that the behavior of default programs changed from win 7/8 to 10. You can set default apps with registry in 7/8 but that method doesn't work in 10. There are the commands "ftype" and "assoc" available in windows scripts, but from what I read this only affects one user in win10 (not all users). The best guide I've found is here (though I have not tested it myself): https://4sysops.com/archives/default-file-associations-in-windows-10/

For the "privacy" settings here's an article from the same website: https://4sysops.com/archives/windows-10-privacy-all-group-policy-settings/

If you set default programs on a system, you can export those associations, then import them again when you are setting up your image.  If you use copyprofile, it will copy those defaults to the default user.


Here is the command that I use to apply the default programs while setting up my image.

C:\windows\system32\Dism.exe /Online /Import-DefaultAppAssociations:"%~dp0AppAssoc.xml"
