  2. Making Tor Browser as default browser and configuring VPN (Windows 10)

    It didn't work.

    This is what I did.

    I uninstalled Tor Browser and reinstalled it. When prompted to ask where to save it, I saved it here. C:/Users/Hewlett/AppData/Local/Tor Browser/Browser/firefox.exe

    So all the files that comes with the installation of Tor Browser bundle are in AppData/Local.

    Then. I opened Notepad, copy-pasted the contents and changed the path as instructed from C:\\Users\\MyUser\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe to C:\\Users\\Hewlett\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe

    (Note: The line that I changed actually says "C:\\Users\\MyUser\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe,0" so I changed it to "C:\\Users\\Hewlett\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe,0"

    I saved it using the extension .reg. Afterwards, I double-clicked the icon of the reg file hopingto run it. I restarted my computer hoping that it works.

    But still, Tor Browser was not in the list of "set as default programs".

    NOTE: These are the contents that I copy-pasted. (Beginning from the line that says "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00")

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    ; Infamous capabilities:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tor Browser\Capabilities]

    "ApplicationDescription"="Tor Browser - Anonymity Online"

    "ApplicationIcon"="C:\\Users\\MyUser\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe,0"

    "ApplicationName"="Tor Browser"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tor Browser\Capabilities\FileAssociations]

    ".htm"="TorBrowserURL"

    ".html"="TorBrowserURL"

    ".shtml"="TorBrowserURL"

    ".xht"="TorBrowserURL"

    ".xhtml"="TorBrowserURL"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tor Browser\Capabilities\URLAssociations]

    "ftp"="TorBrowserURL"

    "http"="TorBrowserURL"

    "https"="TorBrowserURL"

    ; Register to Default Programs

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RegisteredApplications]

    "Tor Browser"="Software\\Tor Browser\\Capabilities"

    ; TorBrowserURL HANDLER:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\TorBrowserURL]

    @="Tor Browser Document"

    "FriendlyTypeName"="Tor Browser Document"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\TorBrowserURL\shell]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\TorBrowserURL\shell\open]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\TorBrowserURL\shell\open\command]

    @="\"C:\\Users\\MyUser\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe\" -osint -url \"%1\""

  3. Making Tor Browser as default browser and configuring VPN (Windows 10)

    In order for the Tor browser to appear in Default Programs or Default Apps listing, it needs to be "registered" with Default Programs manually. See:

  4. New Release of Tor Browser 8.0

    Tor Browser Stopped Working

    If you are upgrading / reinstalling tor browser, don't forget to remove any remaining files from the previous (and most likely faulty) install:

    Code: $ sudo apt-get remove tor-browser $ rm -r ~/.tor-browser-en[/quote]
