Right click on any internet shortcut icon -> select properties and to the right of where it says Opens with: click "Change"

Now you'll be given a list of recommended applications

If you were using firefox it will probably be right there just click it then click "ok"
if the application you used before isn't there click "Browse"

If you want to use Internet Explorer just go to: My Computer -> C:\
-> Program Files then find the folder called Internet explorer, inside you'll find iexplore click it then click open

let me know if that worked ok for you

    Wait sorry that will only work for html files, all you have to do is set your internet browser. do this in Xp by selecting program access and defaults from the start menu now select custom and select whichever web browser you used before

    if you're using vista click default programs then choose your old internet browser and click set as default

I need to place the Google Icon onto my screen.

Greetings Jay,

If you have installed Google Chome and need to add it to the desktop as a shortcut, you would want to do the following:
1. in the search box type in Google Chrome and the Icon will appear.
2. Then you want to hover over it and right-click to open a control menu.
3. There will be an option that says "send to" and it has the option to send it to your desktop as a shortcut.
For Macs, you will simply search in finder "Google Chrome" and drag it to your desktop.

If you can't find it at all here is the link to download Google Chrome. During the installation, it will ask you if you want to create a shortcut to your desktop.

How do i get activated togoole chrome

You probably still have Google Chrome on your machine. It's just the shortcut that has disappeared from your desktop.

You'll have to browse your files to create a new shortcut. Usually Chrome is installed here --> C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application
Unless of course you've chosen a different location during the install. Once you found your Chrome\Application folder you should be able to see a file called "chrome" just right click that and choose "send to" followed by "desktop" to create a new shortcut on your desktop.

Another option is to just use the shortcut from your start menu.

I have google chrome in my programmes but I lack a desktop icon which I want because google chrome is my web browser. I need a method to instal the desktop icon only.

If you are using Windows XP, you may follow the following:
  • Look for chrome.exe. In my case, it is located at "C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application". Please change the USERNAME accordingly.
  • Right click on the chrome.exe and click "Send To->Desktop (create shortcut)".

You might want to try restoring your system (using "System Restore") to a day when you remember the application running correctly. If you cannot do this than yes you will have to uninstall/ reinstall the application. Thanks, Dana
