Hi,

After switching from Windows 2008R2 to 2012R2, we have had some issues with the default browser.

For now the solution is exporting the default file associations and setting it in a GPO:https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/internet-explorer/ie11-deploy-guide/set-the-default-browser-using-group-policy

 

But I would really prefer to do it in a pr. user setting instead.

 

I can see that Citrix WEM can set file associations and was told that this works on 2012R2 as well. Setting it through group policy preferences only works 2008R2 and older.

 

Does anyone know if it's possible to set the default browser with Citrix WEM?

What version of WEM? I think it was fixed in 4.1.

Currently I have installed 4.1 for testing. But I am little bit unsure where to actually set the defaut browser - if it's event possible.

I recall seeing another thread on this but I can't find it. Default browser is a http protocol handler, not a file type.
