Hello everyone,

I've got a small little problem. The thing is, my brother likes to use Mozilla FireFox and OUtlook, I like to use Internet Explorer and Outlook Express.

We both have seperate user accounts, computer administrator. Is there some kind of way that I can set IE as my default program, and FireFox as his default program?

Thanks in advance.

Be in the account you want to set the default browser in.

In firefox it's under tools/options/ general tab. Put a checkmark in default browser.

In Internet Explorer, it's in Tools/Internet Options/Programs tab. Put a checkmark in the box at the bottom of the window. Be sure you are in the user that you want IE to be default.

I don't think you will have to set one of the users as a limited account. If it is necessary go into control panel/ user accounts and click change user account to change to a limited account.

I installed firefox on a customer computer and they called me back the next day saying only one of the accounts could use firefox. I had to set every account to use firefox as default.
