I'm starting to use Skype more and more for work. When people send me links in the IM the link automatically opens up in Internet Explorer. I wanted to change the default to Chrome but could not find where to do so.
I went on line and found the answer: Skype opens
up the device's default browser. You cannot make the change within
Skype. You must go to your browser of choice and make the change there.
begs the question: when designing user admin sections should IA
professionals include information on settings that their app doesn't
update? In this case it would have been very nice for Skype to have a
tab " Update Default Browser" and tell me, the user, that I would have
to go to Chrome and declare that my default browser.
you may ask - why didn't I do that already? Because I unpinned IE from
the Windows 7 taskbar. It wasn't part of my consciousness - that's why.
