Open links in Vista to another browser than Internet Explorer

When you click on a link to a web page, Vista will automatically use the Internet Explorer. This is default setting in Window Vista.

If you want it to use some other program like Firefox or Opera follow next simple steps:

  1. Go to the Control Panel \ Programs \ Default Programs
  2. Click on Set your default programs
  3. Select the Web Browser you want to use
  4. Click on Choose defaults for this program
  5. Under Protocols, check HTTP
  6. Click on Save
  7. You can also check .htm and .html as well
Now when you click on links in an e-mail for example, your other web browser will start. But, if your other browser does not show here, then you can make a change to the registry (for more advanced users):
  1. Go to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Shell \ Associations \ UrlAssociations \ http \ UserChoice
  2. Change it from IE.HTTP to Firefox.Url (if you are using Firefox for example)
  3. Reboot
