How to associate links to open with browser

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
In the Planetside 2 launcher there are links you can follow that are supposed to open in your web browser.

These are various links with tutorials, patch notes etc.

My problem is that somehow I have no program associated to open these links, so every time I click on one of the links I receive this error:



I went to the Default Programs control panel and changed the association of .html files to open with Google Chrome but that did not fix it.

I googled around and I couldn't find any solutions to my problem.

My guess is that it's a file type other than .html that I can't think of.

Shift + right click, open with, Choose default program, make sure the box is checked for "Always use the selected program..." and choose your browser. I've seen this more successful than going through Add/remove programs.

Unfortunately this does not work because they are not your typical click able Windows links...In other words Shift + Right Click does nothing.



EDIT: Still REP+ for teaching me a shortcut I had no idea about thumb.gif

Thank you I managed to find the issue from this. It looks like Google Chrome can't open HTTP and HTTPS files so I just associated them to internet explorer and now the links open fine.
