    Default browser in WinXP (Netscape 6 & IE 6)

    Hello
    My question is the following.

    How would I make NETSCAPE my default browser ?
    I recently installed a program which made IE my default browser and I cant seem to come back to Netscape.
    EX: when I use Copernic to do a search, if I click a link it opens IE but doesn't go to the web site I clicked.

    I have looked in the control panel / internet options / programs but cannot seem to find anything that would help me in reseting my default browser to Netscape.

    Thanks in advance

    Sorry, I don't use Netscape 6 but I do use Mozilla, upon which Netscape 7 is based, so maybe there is some consistency. It's worth a look. In the Netscape browser, try going to Edit, Preferences to see if you find anything like my attachment.

    <UL><LI>'Control Panel' > 'Add or Remove Programs'<LI>On the left side of the window, click 'Set Program Access and Defaults'<LI>Put the radio button on 'Custom' > click the down arrow on that same line<LI>Under 'Choose a default Web browser:', put the radio button in 'Netscape'<LI>Put a check in the box across from it next to 'Enable access to this program' > 'OK'[/list]

    Both Big Al and Bruce are correct -- no surprise!

    I only chime in to say that Netscape under Edit | Preferences | Navigator first page lets you set a check box to make it your default.

    And that's the easier method in my view.
