Dearest Lifehacker, I am using Win XP at the office, and—obviously—my default browser is Firefox. The thing is, I have some "intranet" stuff that must be viewed on Internet Explorer, so I want to make a shortcut to open some specific URLs in iexplorer.exe and not in my default browser. Can this be done? Signed, IE Browser Blues
My good friend Blues, Even if Firefox is your default browser, you can create Windows Explorer shortcuts or even bookmarks in Firefox that will open your Internet Explorer-only sites directly in IE in a couple of simple ways.
