Solved!

Web Browser hard button (next to power button)--how to change? (Pavilion dv6)

HP Recommended

I know this is possible, because I've done it before (a long time ago).

 

How do I change which browser comes up when pressing the web browser button that's to the right of the power button?  Google doesn't have an answer.  🙂

Hey Peregrin72, 

 

Great question! You could first try changing your default Internet Browser setting in Windows. 

 

1. Click the Start button 

2. Type 'default'

3. Click Default Programs

4. Click Set Your Default Programs

5. Click on the desired browser and then click Set this program as default. 

 

Let me know the results of that change. There is also a registry change that may help.

Please email me the registry stuff and the instructions because no matter if I change my default browser or anything it will still open internet explorer. Please email me @ hamza_bhatti95@live.com
