You may have unintentionally made changes to your computer’s default web browser configuration. This usually happens when another web browser has been installed on your computer such as, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari. Google Chrome may have been installed because it’s simply bundled in with other software packages that you may find online. This tutorial will show you how to set Internet Explorer back as your default web browser.


To change your default web browser back to Internet Explorer, begin by:

  1. Opening Internet Explorer and then click on the “Tools” drop down menu. If you don’t have the Command Bar enabled in your web browser, you can enable it by following this add-on guide. Or you can simply click on the little cog in the upper right corner of your browser window.






















  1. Next, click on “Internet Options”.






















  1. Next, proceed to the “Programs” tab.






















  1. Next, click on the “Make Default” button. You may also check the “Tell me if Internet Explorer is not the default web browser” option to make sure that Internet Explorer checks it’s default setting status each time it’s opened.






















  1. Next, simply click on the “OK” button and close out of the “Internet Options” area and you’re all done! Internet Explorer should now be set as your default web browser.
