If I am in SharePoint Designer 2010 and select an item in a folder, and press F12, IE automatically pops up. I would like it to be Chrome. How can I adjust this setting in SharePoint?

I did that and set the checkbox only for Chrome and the correct browser path. I then hit ok, went back to my file, hit F12, but IE still shows up. I also went into Chrome's settings and made it my default browser. This is odd... – blachawk Feb 20 '13 at 17:50
Crap then, that is your only way via SharePoint Designer that I know, also explained here…. Unless you find something in the Registry. – Marius Constantinescu - MVP Feb 22 '13 at 10:19
