Re: Opening a web shortcut with a particular browser

Hi Kimber,
I think this is what you are looking for:
From: Jeremy
Regarding creating shortcuts to webpages using a browser other than the default browser, it can be done as I previously stated, just remember that you
must add the path to the browser’s executable first, then add the URL second. Also know that the entire browser path must be put in quotes or else the
shortcut won’t work.  
Regarding creating shortcuts to webpages other than the default browser…  
One must first include the path to the browser in quotes then add the URL to the webpage. Here’s an example:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" 
Take care.  Go Rams!

I type out everything I want to remember. That way instead of spending a lot of time trying to remember what it was, I spend the time looking for where I saved it!

Subject: Opening a web shortcut with a particular browser


Not too long ago there was a discussion of how to make a shortcut to a
web site open with a particular browser that isn't your default
browser. I believe that discussion took place on this list, but I
can't find the relevant posts. Would someone be good enough to refresh
my memory on how to accomplish this?

Specifically what I want to do is open the NLS BARD web site using
firefox which is not my default browser.

Thanks for any help.
