Default Browser Overview

List the Windows Default Browsers in Your Environment

Discover which browsers are set as the default browser in your IT environment. Browsers play a big role in how users use the internet and which protections and features they have while doing so. Therefore, it is not uncommon to have a preferred default browser for an entire organization to ensure that users have all the functionality they need and that you maximize security while they are online.

The report below lists the default browser for the currently logged-in user for each Windows device in your organization. By using the column filters, you can filter the list to look for specific browsers.

Before running the audit, add the following registry keys to your custom registry scanning.

  • Rootkey: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
  • Regpath: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Associations\UrlAssociations\https\UserChoice
  • Regvalue: ProgId

Note: The results can differ based on the currently logged-on user.
