internet explorerMy favorite browser is Firefox. I like because it is fast, bug-free and comes with tons of add-ons. However, every now and then I like playing with Internet Explorer. Some website are rendered in a better way with such a browser so, when Firefox can not display a website correctly I use Internet Explorer for a couple of minutes (and nothing more!). Now, the annoying thing about this is that every time I open Internet Explorer, the browser keeps asking me if I want to set it as my default browser. Let’s see how to turn off this annoying reminder.

  1. Turn on Internet Explorer.
  2. The dull windows asking to set it as your default browser will appear. Click No.
  3. Now, click the Tool option.
  4. Click Internet Options.
  5. Click the Programs tab.
  6. Untick the Tell me if Internet Explorer is not the default browser checkbox.
  7. Click OK to confirm and save your choice.

    I did this and it’s still asking.

    Same here, I had this fixed in IE6 but since I upgraded to 8 it keeps asking each and every time. It just seems to forget the mentioned setting on the programs tab each time I close it!

    ??? Any ideas ???

    I have internet explorer 10 and under programs tap, you can’t only have the option of making the internet explorer your default browser, which annoys me. And whenever push the no thanks button, nothing happens.
