"How do you want to open this?" question with mailto, pdf, http, https and url protocol handlers

Version 9


    When multiple applications on a machine can handle the same protocols, the user needs to make a choice. In the screenshots below you see an example of the default Windows behavior and the behavior in an Ivanti Workspace Control managed session.

    The choice that is made by the user is stored per protocol in the registry location [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Associations\UrlAssociations\<Protocol>\UserChoice].


    In a Workspace Control managed session this choice is only remembered in the active session. If a user logs off and logs on the UserChoice window, with the text How do you want to open this?, is presented again.
