I can't open links from skype and other programs with my Google Chrome, I have it set as default browser throught my preferences in Google Chrome, but when I checked my Default Programs in my control panel I couldn't even find Google Chrome listed!

What can I do to "add" chrome to the list of default programs? It wasnt listed here either "Set Associations" under the HTTP and HTTPS, it just said "Chrome HTML document, Unknown Program".

I installed chrome last week (the latest version) and the links haven't been working from the beginning. – Klint550 Apr 4 '13 at 13:44

Default Program Editor is a great program that can help you set the default programs in Windows. It is portable so no need to install anything.

We have to set it from within Google Chrome to make it the default browser.

In Chrome browser, go to setting , then click the button that says "make Google Chrome the default Browser for this computer".

Hope this helps!
