How do I change the default browser in lotus notes when opening links in emails?



As an IT administrator, you may occasionally find that you need to change the default browser used by Lotus Notes. This is especially true if you are using an older version of Lotus Notes, as the default browser may not be compatible with the latest versions of webpages and web applications. In this article, we will discuss how to change the default browser used by Lotus Notes.

First, you will need to open the Lotus Notes client. Once the client is open, select the File menu, and then select the Preferences option. When the Preferences window appears, select the Basic Notes Client Configuration option. This will open a new window, which should have a section labeled “Default Browser”.

Click the “Change” button next to the Default Browser option. This will open a new window, which will allow you to choose the browser that Lotus Notes should use as the default. Select the browser you want to use, and then click the “OK” button.

Once the browser is selected, you will need to restart the Lotus Notes client for the changes to take effect. Once the client is restarted, it should now use the browser you have selected as the default. It is important to note that if you are using an older version of Lotus Notes, the browser selection may be limited to Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari.

In addition to setting the default browser, you may also need to change the settings for the browser. To do this, open the browser you have selected as the default, and then select the Tools option from the browser’s menu. Select the Options option, and then select the Advanced tab.

In the Advanced tab, you should find a section labeled “Internet”. Under this section, you should find an option labeled “Programs”. Click the “Programs” option, and then select the “Change” button. This will open a window that will allow you to choose which application should be used as the default browser for Lotus Notes. Select the application you want to use, and then click the “OK” button.

Once the application has been selected, you will need to restart the browser for the changes to take effect. Once the browser is restarted, it should now use the application you have selected as the default.

Changing the default browser used by Lotus Notes is a fairly simple process. However, if you are using an older version of Lotus Notes, the browser selection may be limited. It is important to remember that if you are using an older version of Lotus Notes, the browser selection may be limited to Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari. Additionally, you may need to change the settings for the browser in order for the changes to take effect.
