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".

  • get the latest version of chrome and re-install it !!! – Freeman Apr 4 '13 at 11:59
  • 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

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!


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. http://defaultprogramseditor.com/
