@AB21805 

 

Don't know for certain if it should still work

 

Configure the chrome browser as default on a test device

On that same test device open powershell to export the appassoc :) 

 

“dism /online /export-defaultappassociations:appassoc.xml”

 

Open that XML and Encode the content of that XML to base 64

You can do so by opening this website

https://www.base64encode.net/

 

OPen intune and create a new csp 

 

./Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/ApplicationDefaults/DefaultAssociationsConfiguration

String: Base64 content you encoded earlier

This blog post it is awell explaination how you can set Edge as default browser. Of course, you can adapt this for Chrome:
