Just a few days back I made Chrome my default browser. Can you please suggest how to make IE the default browser again?

  • But ... why IE? I mean, seriously!

Go to Tools menu .. Then Internet Options then click on Programs tab .. check this box ---- Tell me if Internet Explorer is not a default browser


In IE 8:

Tools > Internet Options > Programs.

There's a Make Default button at the top of the tab.


Here is one more alternative for XP ..

  • Nice! Accepted answer didn't work for me (I'd already tried) - Chrome just wouldn't let go - but this worked a treat. Mar 23, 2010 at 12:09
