Windows 10 set default browser to Internet Explorer only for fist login on a pc

Hello we are deploying windows 10 and we use Default Associations Configuration File GPO to set some default program like Internet Explorer instead of Edge

The problem is the if a user set chrome as his default browser at next login it will come back to IE

Is there a way to use Default Associations Configuration File gpo just the first time a user login on a computer ?

Thanks !

I don't wanna set chrome as default

I want to put IE as default only for the first logon

After that it's a user choice and i don't want change it back to IE if a user set it to chrome or firefox

Understood. What Jackieman links, is what you already did and what does not leave the user with the choice to change the default.
Since win10 change the registry based way to something very complicated (streams), there is no easy way. Maybe just don't do it at all and inform your users.
