SCCM report for default browser counts–Tech Preview 1802

Another small addition to Configuration Manager Technical Preview 1802 is a report which lists the various web browsers out there in your client estate which are set as default.


At the moment this is a first draft of the report as it doesn’t render the names properly as you can see. If you reference the official docs for this though you will see the translations as follows:

  • AppXq0fevzme2pys62n3e0fbqa7peapykr8v: Microsoft Edge
  • IE.HTTP: Microsoft Internet Explorer
  • ChromeHTML: Google Chrome
  • OperaStable: Opera Software
  • FirefoxURL-308046B0AF4A39CB: Mozilla Firefox

Note the known issue listed in the official documents which states that you only see a count of browsers and not the browser code. I had this and you simply need to right click the report and Edit. In here you can then find the data source, right click and edit the query. You need to swap out the select statement for this one.

select BrowserProgId00 as BrowserProgId, Count(*) as Count
group by BrowserProgId00

I expect some progression on this one by the next tech preview release and hopefully in the future we can perhaps target the report at a specific collection.

    • Besides the report, you will find in Hardware Inventory that it’s collecting Default Browser from SMS_DefaultBrowser in WMI.

      You will also find some defaul association information for a user in the registry here.

      You will find a UserChoice and ProgId.


    • select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_DEFAULT_BROWSER on SMS_G_System_DEFAULT_BROWSER.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_DEFAULT_BROWSER.BrowserProgID = ‘XXXXX’
