Default browser in windows 8

Postby dogward » Mon Oct 15, 2012 8:25 am

I've installed Windows 8 about a week ago, and I still can't figure how to set Iron as my default browser : I can set any other as default (FireFox, Opera, ..., even Chrome !), but there is no way I can set Iron as default. Is there anyway/workaround to be able to set it ?

Thanks a lot.

Re: Default browser in windows 8 - SOLUTION

I have finally fixed the issue of making Iron the default browser on Windows 8.

1 - Go to: C:\Program Files (x86)\SRWare Iron
2 - Right-click the "chrome" (not Iron) application file and run as Administrator
3 - Iron will open and ask if you want to make it the default browser
4 - You can also thereafter go to settings and make it the default
5 - In your Control Panel > Default Programs > Set Default Programs... Chromium will be listed and you can select it as the default browser

That's it.
