I have a PUSHBUTTON on my Windows app which I want to bring the clicker to a website.
How do I code the click event handler or set some property at design time to do that?

Did you try LinkLabel control available in Windows Forms toolbox?

If you want to do this using button, use Process.Start Method (ProcessStartInfo) in the button handler. Set ProcessStartInfo.UseShellExecute Property to true and ProcessStartInfo.FileName to required URL.
