As an IT administrator, you may want to create shortcuts to websites that will use Internet Explorer (IE) instead of the default browser. This can be useful for both organizational and personal reasons.
Organizations often need to use IE for specific applications or websites, such as for intranets or for certain web-based applications. Some websites and web-based applications may only work in IE, or may only work as expected in IE. Organizations may also need to use IE on certain computers to access websites or resources which are only available in IE.
In addition, some users may prefer to use IE for their personal web browsing. IE is a popular browser, and many users may feel more comfortable using it instead of the default browser.
Fortunately, creating shortcuts to websites that will use IE instead of the default browser is a straightforward process. To begin, you will need to open the Windows control panel and select the “Internet Options” option. From here you will be able to access the “Programs” tab.
On the “Programs” tab, you will be able to select the “Make Default” button. This will allow you to choose which browser you want to use for all internet related activities. Select the “Internet Explorer” option and click “OK”.
Now that you have set IE as the default browser, you will be able to create shortcuts to websites that will use IE instead of the default browser. To do this, simply right click the website, and select the “Create Shortcut” option. This will create a shortcut to the website on your desktop.
When you click on the shortcut, the website will open in IE instead of the default browser. You can also add the shortcut to your taskbar or start menu, so that you can easily access the website whenever you need to.
By following these steps, you will be able to create shortcuts to websites that will use IE instead of the default browser. This can be a useful tool for organizations who need to use IE for certain applications or websites, as well as for personal users who prefer to use IE for their web browsing.
