Website Shortcut

I have a website that I have as short cut on my Windows 7/XP desktop.
The problem is that whenever I open it, it opens up in Chrome.
I need the short cut open in ie not Chrome.
The users can't right click & choose browser. When the user double clicks the shortcut it should open in ie.
Removing Chrome is not an option.
Thanks in advance

Make ie your default browser. ie tools internet options programs
Hi RFLafferty,

You need to create a shortcut to the IE executable and then add the URL as the first switch.

E.G.
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://www.google.co.uk

Open in new window


HTH but I probably won't be the first with this :)
