Chrome vs IE - opening information in browser

Post by thefaceman »

I would prefer Chrome to be my primary option when I open links In MM, but I one window opens in IE instead

When I use Right menu > Get Info option it opens in a new tab in Chrome (as I wanted)

But in the Right menu > AutoTag from web uses IE (I would rather it use Chrome)

Where can I set MM to only use Chrome as my default brower for ALL web inquires?

Thank you for your time in advance

This is not possible. The reason is that the auto-tag from web window is just internet explorer embedded into a MediaMonkey window. Obviously you can't click a link in Internet explorer and have it open into a different browser.

Maybe there is a a way to 'trick' IE to launch Chrome if it tries to open IE.

Question: So it would be a request to whomever developed this 'auto-tag from web' feature to reference the 'preferred' browser option link in MM and remove the direct IE link?

Auto-Tag from Web already runs in IE (integrated component) and thus any links from it open in IE. This can't be changed unless a different browser is integrated and in that case if would open in that browser (which makes IE a good choice as it's the one browser that most people will have).
