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?



In the ribbon, via "Preview in Browser"

  • 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... – klewis Feb 20 '13 at 17:50
  • Crap then, that is your only way via SharePoint Designer that I know, also explained here aaclage.blogspot.ch/2011/10/…. Unless you find something in the Registry. – Marius Constantinescu - MVP Feb 22 '13 at 10:19

for those who still needs a solution.

  1. Follow the steps provided by Marius. (Click Preview in Browser -> Edit Browser List -> Add... -> Add... -> Provide Name (Can be any)-> Command (Provide path to chrome.eexe; use 'Browse...' if needed)

  2. Now, click again 'Preview in Browser' in the ribbon then in the dropdown list, select the one for your Chrome. (Refer to https://imgur.com/a/Q1HaL0S)
