Just built a new pc and installed Vista home premium - my first experience with vista! I want to set Chrome as the default browser, and indeed I have. Everywhere I look IE is reported as not default, and Chrome is reported as default. BUT - when I launch from the dedicated key on my keyboard(Microsoft wireless laser 6000 V2) it is IE that launches! The only way I can launch Chrome is from a shortcut, or from the toolbar. Help!
Quick response - thanks guys! In the Intellitype the default for the key is "start web browser" . On my old machine with XP the key started Chrome, which was set as default browser, which is as I expect. This is why I wonder if this is a "Vista problem". I suppose I could remap the key to Chrome, but I think it should launch the default browser. After all, another user (the wife) may prefer another browser. Your thoughts?
thamks Sea Urchin, but no joy I'm afraid. I had found that method yesterday, somewhere else, and I've just tried again, just to make sure, (that I don't look a prat) and = no success. So, still lookin' for an answer. Any more?
