In response to numerous requests, we will be implementing a network policy on Monday, November 14th that will set Google Chrome as the default browser on all Windows computers in the district. While this policy will go into effect on Monday, it won’t apply on a particular computer until it has been either started up or restarted.
The effect of this change will be that HTML shortcuts and links in emails and PDF documents will open in Chrome, rather than in another browser. You will still be able to use other browsers – such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Edge – by opening the browser directly. Most users are unlikely to notice any effect of this change, as Chrome is – by far – the most heavily used web browser in the district. For clarification, this policy change will have no impact on homepage settings or bookmarks.
