    Any way to force IE11 as default browser via domain GP? Server 2008


    So I have a client who just got 10 new windows 10 machines and added them to the windows 2008R2 domain. By default, Edge is the set browser and I know I can manually go into the profile and set the preferred browser but the problem is multiple users connect to each machine (this is in a DR office) the nurses move around and log into their profiles on each machine. So they would have to do this on each machine for each user which they don't want to do.

    Is there a way to enforce the browser for all windows 10 machines via GPA to use IE11 that comes with windows 10?

    My idea was to either domain wide on windows 10 machines use IE11 or if not possible created a GPA based on OS and set the default browser.

    Or worst case figures out a way to remove Edge from the machines.

    Does anyone happen to know a way or ran into this issue previously?

    Check with Microsoft before attempting to remove Edge, you might end up with in-valid/un-authentic Windows. If memory serves me, I think the IT people had to develop a PUSH technology, a forced net-station download and a forced Top/Down maintenance, in order to enforce certain defaults.

    Set the default browser using Group Policy (Internet Explorer 11 for IT Pros)
