Browser used when opening links in e-mails

Not open for further replies.


Recently, something changed in my Outlook 2003. When I open a link embedded in an e-mail, it now uses Google Chrome as the browser. I want to go back to using Internet Explorer as the browser that opens links in my e-mails. How do I do that?

Which version of Internet Explorer (IE) do you use?

If you use IE7 or IE8 then try the steps mentioned below.

Click on Tools > Internet options > Programs; ensure to have a check if mark in the box reading "Tell me if Internet Explorer is not my default browser" and click OK.

Now click on Start > All Programs > Internet Explorer. You"ll be prompted to click on "Yes" or "No" when you try open the browser. Click "Yes" to set Internet Explorer as default.
