    How do I make internet explorer the default browser in an email link?


    I went into default apps in settings and chose internet explorer. Shortcuts on the desktop and links within web pages all open with internet explorer. However when I click on a link in an email it asks me to choose a browser and lists the 3 that are on this computer. How do I get it to just open all links in emails with internet explorer?

    Are there specific extension defaults that I need to change?

    :)

  2. How do I make Internet Explorer the default browser?

    Internet Explorer and Edge

    Hello

    Google Chrome is my default search engine because I found that it played "offended-almost literally" if not defined as default.

    I also have Firefox-rarely in use and Microsoft Edge.

    I have downloaded Internet Explorer and pinned it to the taskbar. I need it for my work as a C.P.A. as the Israeli Tax Authority and also my broker do not support any other search engine.

    However, when i click on IE, I always but always get Microsoft edge. How can i overcome the problem?

    Apparently this is a known bug with a known fix, in either Microsoft's 'fix it for me' or the 'here's what to edit in the registry' form.
