Custom Browser protocols AKA URI schemes

In our previous post we described how to create a white-list registry key in windows to be able to automatically open apps from Google  chrome. 

We received some inquiries about how to white-list other protocols/links for different applications. 

The main issue is you have to know which protocol or link is used by the program you want to white-list.

The AINA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) keeps an official list of browser protocols on their website.

You can also find a list of browser protocols on wikipedia

Unfortunately a lot of Applications use a URI scheme which is not listed or registered. We are working on creating a list for all these protocols.
