Do you want IE as your default browser?


EDIT: if that message pops up every time you open IE and you want IE as the default....see info in link below.

How to disable "would you like to make internet explorer your - Microsoft Community



  1. Click on the Windows Key + R Key and type gpedit.msc then hit Enter.
  2. You will get Windows Local Group Policy Editor. Navigate to User Configuration, click on Administrative Templates, click on Windows Components, click on Internet Explorer.
  3. Next, double click on Notify users if Internet Explorer is not the default web browser selection.
  4. Set the policy to Disabled and select OK.


Upon following the above steps any user who logs into the computer and uses Internet Explorer will no longer be pestered by the prompt.
