      Ed,

      Previously I said I have six browsers to use, but had 7 before I
      uninstalled the 'Chrome' browser. Make that 8 browsers because I also
      uninstalled 'Safari'.

      Below is an entry for 'Opera' in 'browsers.dat', numbers added for clarity.

      1. [OPERA]
      2. Command="C:\I-Net\Opera\Opera.Exe"
      3. UseDDE=0
      4. Application="C:\I-Net\Opera\Opera.Exe"
      5. DdeCommand=0
      6. DdeExec="%1",,%2,0,,,,
      7. Topic=WWW_OpenURL
      8. Application_New=
      9. DdeExec_New=
      10. Topic_New=

      It makes no difference what you '[name]' the entry as long as you use
      that name when referencing that browser when using 'F8' and 'Shift+F8'.

      All my 'browsers.dat' entries are identical except for lines 1, 2, 4,
      and they all work correctly. You will have to locate the executables
      and furnish the paths for the dat file.

      You should be able to do that using the 'Find File' function with
      'Windows Explorer' or other file manager.

      About the questions at the top, the 'command line parameter' -nohome, I
      think prevents 'IE' from opening to a pre-selected 'homepage'. The
      'DdeCommand=0' and 'DdeExec=whatever' have to do with 'Dynamic Data
      Exchange' of which I'm not sure it is. Mine all work set as above.

        One last question, we have tabs 'F8' and 'shift+F8, that gets us our Browser
        and the Other Browser, if we have 3 or more browsers how do we choose the
        one we want using shift+F8?

          Ed,

          You can either go into 'View > Options > Internet' and switch them
          manually or use a clip similar to the one I wrote that will give access
          to all the entries you want that are in 'browsers.dat.'

          Since this is about browsers and using a clip is necessary it should be
          OK to include it here. You'll have to edit the entries in the '^!Set
          %browser%=' line to coincide with the entry names in you dat file.

          Any questions about the clip please respond on the 'clips list'.

            Ed,

            You can either go into 'View > Options > Internet' and switch them
            manually or use a clip similar to the one I wrote that will give access
            to all the entries you want that are in 'browsers.dat.'

            Since this is about browsers and using a clip is necessary it should be

            %browser%=' line to coincide with the entry names in you dat file.
