    Desktop Shortcut GPO to open link in Chrome Browser

    Hello everyone,

    I am trying to get some shortcuts to open in Google Chrome browser, rather than the default system browser which is IE.

    We need to keep IE as the default browser.

    The properties dialogue for adding shortcuts doesn't seem to have an 'open using app...' input anywhere so I'm stumped.

    Any advice would be gratefully received, thanks in advance
