How to change the default browser in Outlook?

Have you ever noticed that when you clicking the hyperlinks in an Outlook email message, the web pages are automatically opened with your default browser? For some users, they prefer to open the web pages in other browsers, such as Firefox, Google rather than your default browser. This tutorial will show you how to change the default browser to the one you prefer in Outlook.

You can change the default browser directly in the browser you prefer. In the following method, I use the Firefox as an example.

1. Open the Firefox browser, then click Firefox button > Options.

2. In the Options dialog, click Advanced > General. And then click Make Firefox the default browser button. Then click OK.

Note: Through the above two methods, not only the browser in Outlook but in the computer has been modified.

    As others have stated, this procedure DOESN'T fix the issue of Explorer being the browser that opens from Outlook (for instance, when an email doesn't download properly and I choose "view it in a web browser") but also messes up all other associations. After following the instructions under "Changing The Default Program Setting In Your Computer", I had to redo associations for PDFs and for Email / Calendar, as I show in the image.


    At first I thought @devilish2o was a little harsh, but I end up agreeing - you should be fired.
