64 bit IE as Default?

Running win7u 64 bit:

How can IE 64 (rather than IE 32) be made the default browser?

Thanks,
James

Welcome James

A few thoughts about your question, and I agree:

Make Internet Explorer 64-bit the default? - Vista Forums

See frame number 6. Untried by me or any one else that I know

Thanks, Rich. Renaming the folder did it. I suppose I will have to rename back to the proper folder before allowing an update to IE, but that shouldn't be too difficult. I like 64 for various reasons, including the lack of Flash. I can always use FF if I want to view a flash site (I do know that I can turn flash off in FF with an addon, but I'm still not sure I want to use FF...I'm trying to find a browser that fits, but am still deciding).

Thanks for your (accurate) response.
