Outlook links, opening in new browser
- Last week, someone was asking about how to stop internet hyperlinks in
Outlook being opened in a particular browser. I had this problem
recently, and remembered that I had had it before and had fixed it.
In converting from MyIE2 to Firefox, I changed the default browser,
but this didn't affect the handler for Outlook hyperlinks. I
remembered to try changing a file association. The one that worked for
me was changing Extension (NONE) File Type URL:HyperText Transfer
Protocol to associate it with Firefox (go to Explorer, Tools, Folder
Options, File Types tab) and now clicking on links in Outlook messages
opens them in Firefox (I'm using Windows XP).
