Recommended Posts

Hello, I know that Edge is the default browser of Windows 10. I would like to write a script with autoit which makes Internet explorer my default browser. I'm new with autoit. Thank you in advance for your precious help.

Unless I don't understand this can be easily done in your Windows 10 settings:

Select the Start button, and then type Default app settings.

  • In the search results, select Default app settings.

  • Under Web browser, select the browser currently listed, and then select Microsoft Edge or another browser.

  • pick the installed browser you want

if you are looking to automate the changing of your default browser maybe research registry keys and find the right one, then use regwrite function in autoit.


if @error Then
	MsgBox(262192,"",@ComputerName&" slaps "&@UserName&" around a bit with a large trout!")
	EndIf

>Exit code: 0

Thank you for answering me. Yes, I can do it manually but I am currently deploying Windows 10 in a  task sequence with SCCM and I wish that at the end of the deployment, users have directly Internet Explorer as default browser. I work with AutoIt that I am discovering. I just want to add my script in a task sequence.

Thanks for your help.
