comment How to define what IE is going to be launched by default (32 bit vs 64 bit)
@Ramhound Hi, thanks for the comment. This is what I did right now, launched it from Run Dialog with full path preceding the web address but I want to avoid doing that. How can I set it as a default browser in that manner? It's still IE so it won't offer that automatically.

@BigChris Hi and thanks for your comment. Yes I realized that this is the difference (32 bit vs 64 bit). It looks like an expected behavior (take a look here: superuser.com/q/52874/111772). The question is how to make 64 but the default?

comment Is there a way to dump a webpage source without having to interact directly with browser?
Hi, you are right. My initial question probably had to be more detailed. However I thought that the points I added later will do the job, I apologize if they didn't. The actual goal is being able to extract the source of a currently open webpage, regardless of what it took to get there(log in, fill data, click buttons). I have a test automation framework that interacts with the visual content only. That makes it a problem to find data on the page. If I had a way of dumping the source of the current webpage, that will give me the ability to parse that source to find the desired information.

Hi and thanks for your valuable input. However this solution brings me to the same point as I discussed above which is that I have to launch the browser with that request in order to be able to retrieve the source from it. I however, have certain steps to be taken before I reach that page I want to view its source. Thanks

Thanks you for your answer. Command line is perfect, however I'm not sure I will be able to implement your solution. 1. The webpage I am running is a local web service that is open in kiosk mode (no menu or address field) so there is no clear url I can copy. 2. Since this service requires authentication, I can't just open and access the page directly, even if I had the url. 3. I want to get the source of the current actual page as I make changes on it and I want these changes to be reflected in the source, if I run the same page in new window, I won't have my edited fields
