Subject: Re: Google Chrome question
I did as you suggested; however, when I pressed enter to find the list of available browsers, only Microsoft Edge is read by Jaws. I use the arrow keys in all directions and also even tried making Firefox the default by using the suggested keystrokes of alt+shift+d, but it does not seem to work.
I will presume you're working under Windows 10. Although the principle of what follows applies to earlier versions of Windows the step-by-step instructions I will be giving do not. It sounds like Google Chrome is currently set as your default web browser and you'd prefer that IE11 be your default web browser. The following steps will allow you to set any installed web browser on your system as the one that will be used by default for click-through links. I regret to say that this does not apply, at all, to Cortana if you're using the Personal Digital Assistant feature, as she's had a "forced marriage" to MS-Edge and Bing.
To set your default web browser:
After having done the above when you "click through" on a link it should open in Internet Explorer until or unless you change your default browser to something else or a Windows Update changes it for you (which can happen, and usually reverts it to MS-Edge, but doesn't happen often).
