On Cameyo Windows servers, Internet Explorer / Edge is the default web browser for hyperlinks, but this can be changed to Chrome using one of the following methods:

  • PowerTag

    In a PowerTag field (application, server, or company settings), add the PowerTag !Chrome=1 to the field. This PowerTag will automatically launch Chrome instead of Internet Explorer / Edge.

  • New user configuration policy

    1. Get chromedefault.xml from the Google support website and place it on the Cameyo Play Server
    2. Run the following command in the folder where the xml is:
      Dism.exe /Online /Import-DefaultAppAssociations:chromedefault.xml

      Note: This change will only affect new user profiles. Existing profiles will not have their default changed.

  • Script to use a placeholder iexplore.exe

    Create the following batch file iedefault.bat and run it:
    pushd .
    powershell -Command "Invoke-WebRequest https://files.cameyo.com/downloads/iexplore.exe -OutFile %temp%\iexplore.exe"
    cd "C:\Program Files\internet explorer"
    taskkill /F /IM iexplore.exe
    takeown /F iexplore.exe
    icacls.exe iexplore.exe /T /Q /C /RESET
    xcopy /y "%temp%\iexplore.exe" .
  • Manually using a placeholder iexplore.exe

    1. Download https://files.cameyo.com/downloads/iexplore.exe
    2. Place this file in C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer instead of the existing executable.
