    How to Change your default browser

    Microsoft Windows uses the default Web browser setting when you click links in a document or on a Web page. Windows uses Microsoft Internet Explorer by default, but you can change to a different browser if you want to, I will discuss here how to do it and provided Outlook Support for solving Your Outlook Problem.
    To change from Internet Explorer to another browser, do one of the following:

    • If you haven't installed another browser, do that first. During installation, most browsers display a message asking if you want to use that browser as the default browser.
    • If the browser that you want to use is already installed, open it. You should see a message asking if you want to use that browser as the default browser. If you don't see the message, use the following instructions, but choose the browser that you want to use instead of Internet Explorer.

    To make Internet Explorer your default Web browser

    1. Open Internet Explorer. (Click Start, and then click Internet Explorer. If you don't see Internet Explorer on the Start menu, point to All Programs, and then click Internet Explorer.)
      • If a message appears asking if you want Internet Explorer to be your default browser, click Yes.
      • If a message does not appear, go to Step 2.
    2. On the taskbar, click Start, and then click Set Program Access and Defaults.

    Note The Set Program Access and Defaults option is available only in Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 1 or Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2.

    1. In the Add or Remove Programs dialog box, click Custom, and then click the arrow to the right.
    2. Under Choose a default Web browser, click Internet Explorer, and then click OK.

    Tip If you have more than one Web browser installed, you can hide links to those browsers from the Start menu, the Windows taskbar, and your desktop by clearing the Enable access to this program check box.

    When you start any browser, you will get a notice to make it a default browser.
