IE does not update keys in registry RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello experts,

    I observed that when we set IE to be the default browser it does not update the \\HKCR\.htm and \\HKCR\.html keys in the windows registry. It doesn't update these keys even when we associate file types .htm and .html with IE. Ideally it should. Is this a known issue? Do you have any plans to fix it?

    Thanks and regards,

  • Hi bhideP,

    The registry entries you mentioned is not designed for IE, these values are changed only when other browser or application is assigned. And these values are only changed back when this program has been uninstalled. You could simply consider that these values are designed for other programs.
