window 10 default apps

Jump to solution

Hi,

we have noticed that the default applications being changed after recompose, outlook  is not my default mail client and Edge is the default application for PDF not Adobe acrobat

is there a workaround for this problems rather than using group policy

For Default apps:

On the gold image we configure default apps and export it to an .xml

dism /online /Export-DefaultAppAssociations:”%userprofile%\Desktop\NewDefaultAppAssociations.xml”

We use UEM to copy that file to a location on the VM.

In GPO we point File explorer to that location

User Defined Settings:

We go a step future and when a user logs off a powershell script creates a new .xml file and saves it in UEM profile. On logon, we copy that file to the same location as the one above (it overwrites the gold image xml) and that gets imported.
