How can I use PolicyPak Browser router to force people to always use the SAME browser?

If multiple browsers are installed but you want to (generally) restrict users to a specific one, you can create a Browser Router Policy to accomplish this.

First, choose a common page to start each browser on, for example google.com or a corporate home page.

Then configure each browser to open this page every time it’s started. You simply use PolicyPak Application Settings Manager (not PolicyPak Browser Router) to set the following values.

Firefox:

Chrome:

how-can-i-use-policypak-browser-router-to-force-people-to-always-use-the-same-browser-2

Internet Explorer:

how-can-i-use-policypak-browser-router-to-force-people-to-always-use-the-same-browser-3

Now let’s create a Policy that always opens a specific browser when a specific page is requested, in our case, the home page we configured above.

In this example, anytime someone starts Firefox or Internet Explorer, Browser Router will immediately close that browser and open Chrome.
