1.     Open the Start menu, go into the "Administrative Tools" folder and select "Group Policy Management."

2.     Right-click on your primary Group Policy Object from the list on the left side of the window and choose the "Edit" option. This will launch the Group Policy Object Editor tool.

3.     Open the "User Configuration" and "Windows Settings" folders.

4.     Right-click on the entry labeled "Internet Explorer Maintenance" and select "Preference Mode."

5.     Double-click on the "Programs (Preference Mode)" icon to view the additional Internet Explorer settings.

6.     Click on the radio button next to "Import the Current Program Settings" and then press "Modify Settings."

7.     Click on the "Make Default" button in the "Default web browser" section of the window.

8.     Press "OK" twice to save the Group Policy Object settings. Now Internet Explorer will automatically be the default browser for all computers on the local network.
