Windows 7: Specifying the “default web browser” doesn't respond!

23 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hi BrightBlessings,

The issue is still confusing.

I couldn’t find an option that CLEARLY says: “set this browser as default” neither in Internet Explorer” nor in “Firefox” or “Google chrome”.

What’s confusing also is whether this option is set on the level of the browser or from the operating system (windows)?

For example, as I have 3 web browsers, how to set one of them to be the default?

From Windows 7 Control Panel and Default Programs, which browser is listed, if any?
