Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Links clicked in other applications, like MS Office or instant messengers open up in new browser window. It wouldn't be much of a problem, but that windows doesn't use any extensions or styles I have installed, which makes it almost unusable.

Of course, Iron is set as a default browser.

I need to know how to make Windows/Iron open links in the window that is already opened, or - if there isn't any - in a new window, but with all my extensions and profile data.

Open RegEdit and navigate to Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command and replace %PathToIronPortableFolder%\Iron\Iron.exe with %PathToIronPortableFolder%\IronPortable.exe

(you probably want to do same thing for https entry that is just below Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT_\http\...)

That's don't work, plugins are not working anymore with this regedit modification. You must put your profile in the windows user apps folder setting ! –  user97471 Sep 11 '11 at 12:55
