    You do not have to do anything. All browsers are going to do the same thing.

    hi, bro23,
    thanks for ur answer

    i know that - they more or less do all the same, but some of them ...... web.whatsapp for examle does not work on ie and plenty of south american pages do not run realy with FF or chrome

    but, the question is, how i can set the checkbox of in the system setings or registry, if i once forget to uncheck the box
    the "browser chooser" is gone and i have reset the "use always" the last browser.

    so my question easy: which registry entry set the checkbox off, all the examples here for the right click select defaul prog do not have any effects

    rgds, pipps
