    How to reset IE as default browser instead of Edge


    Hi there

    I can't use EDGE as my default browser as I have a few media servers and as has been pointed out that as EDGE is a universal app addresses like 127.0.0.1:8000 (i.e localhost type stuff) are no longer addressable. I need these types of addresses to use the web interface control settings on various of my media servers so I want to reset IE as the default app.

    There was a previous question on this but I can't seem to find it any more.

    Cheers

    Hi there

    Thanks --I knew it was there somewhere - but it's easy to forget things like that if you rarely use them.

    Cheers

    Specially when almost everything is getting moved around.

    Ahh...now I know why my local proxy that I will never do without doesn't work on Spartan.

    How come I can't set Pale Moon or Fx to default for .pdf? That's not a choice on them. Why? They have a builtin PDF reader I use all the time. Spartan has .pdf currently. Why can't I change that? I won't be using Spartan at all ever since it can't connect to my local proxy.
