    Making IE the default browser via the registry or script


    Hi,

    Is there a way to automate changing the default browser from Edge to IE. We are still dependent on IE and can not deploy W10 with Edge as the default.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Hi Bunnyj

    I need to automate the change. Typically I would use a registry hack.

    Thanks

    In the search bar, type default programs > at the popup box, click Default Programs > click Set your default programs > left side, select Internet Explorer > right side, click Set this program as default > OK

    Adding ..... sorry, I did not see your last post regarding " automatic " change. In that case, my method is irrelevant.
