During OSD DefaultApps.xml is being set so that IE and Adobe Reader DC are default. However, once a new user logs on those defaults are reset back to Edge. I have researched and made probably 4 changes based on what folks are currently doing but cannot seem to get the DefaultApps to remain. I guess my GoogleFu is weak.


Any ideas? Currently using the following...

Set the only the items you want to change (e.g. Edge to I.E.) and store it onto a read-only network file share (\\<server>\<Shared Folder>\GPOTest\IEDefaultAssociations.xml)


Save file as "IEDefaultAssociations.xml"

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<DefaultAssociations>

  <Association Identifier=".htm" ProgId="htmlfile" ApplicationName="Internet Explorer" />

  <Association Identifier=".html" ProgId="htmlfile" ApplicationName="Internet Explorer" />

  <Association Identifier=".url" ProgId="IE.AssocFile.URL" ApplicationName="Internet Browser" />

  <Association Identifier=".website" ProgId="IE.AssocFile.WEBSITE" ApplicationName="Internet Explorer" />

  <Association Identifier="http" ProgId="IE.HTTP" ApplicationName="Internet Explorer" />

  <Association Identifier="https" ProgId="IE.HTTPS" ApplicationName="Internet Explorer" />

</DefaultAssociations>

  • This disables the end user from, at some point, being able to manually change back to Edge as default, correct?
    • Yes the GPO will override user settings at login.
