In this dialog box in Internet Explorer® Maintenance (IEM), you can customize which programs your users use by default for Internet services (such as e-mail and newsgroups) by importing the program associations from your computer.

You must be a member of the Administrators group to work with IEM and Group Policy objects (GPOs).

To import program associations for Internet services using IEM
  1. In IEM, expand Internet Explorer Maintenance.

  2. In the left pane, click Programs, and then in the right pane, double-click Programs.

  3. Click Import the current Program Settings to use the program associations from your computer to preset your users' settings.

  4. If you want to change any of these settings before they are applied, click Modify Settings. This opens the Programs tab in the Internet Properties dialog box.

  5. Edit the settings as needed.
