In our company we are testing a Chrome deployment that will be used alongside Internet Explorer. Only a select few of our users are local admins on their machines, so most individuals are locked down pretty tight obviously. One of the complaints we've had during this testing stage however has been that users cannot set Chrome as their default browser if they choose. It asks the users when they launch if they want to make Chrome default, and they choose yes, but it doesn't seem to take. Strangely, the "Internet" program listed at the top of the start menu changes, but when clicking on shortcuts to websites or anything else it defaults to IE. Is there a way to allow users this limited control via a GPO? Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
For the record, I've tried logging in as them (with non admin rights) and forcing Chrome to be default several different ways, but it just won't take, so it's definitely a permissions issue.
