After publishing my article about Installing Google Chrome Administrative Templates, This article will show you how to set Google Chrome as the default browser on A Windows 10 operating system.
To set Google Chrome as the default browser on Windows 7 visit the article Make Google Chrome The Default Browser In Windows 7 Using Group Policy.
In order to achieve this, I’ll use a Windows 10 machine to generate a .XML file using DISM cmd line utility and a group policy setting to apply It to machines.
The first step Is to Install Google Chrome on a Windows 10 machine
On the Windows 10 machine open Settings -> Default Apps and set chrome as default Browser.
Next, open CMD and run the line below (change the shared folder to match your environment
Dism /Online /Export-DefaultAppAssociations:\\dc01\files\defaultassociations.xml
Once done open group policy and set the settings below using the .XML file above.
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > File Explorer -> Set a default associations configuration file
This Is how the .XML file looks like.
Restart the computer and as you can see all my HTML files are set to use Google Chrome.
