How to: Add Web Browsers to Visual Web Developer

In Visual Web Developer, you can use any Web browser to view your Web pages. If the Browse With dialog box does not list a browser that is installed on your computer, you can add this browser to the list and then use it to view files within Visual Web Developer.

To add a Web browser to Visual Web Developer

  1. In Solution Explorer, right-click the file that you want to view in a Web browser and then click Browse With.

  2. In the Browse With dialog box, click Add.

  3. In the Program name text box, type the path to the browser that you want to add. Alternatively, click the ellipses button and browse to the program.

  4. In the Friendly name text box, type a name for this Web browser, and then click OK.

  5. If you want to make the new Web browser the default for browsing all files within Visual Web Developer, click Set as Default.
