How do I make Opera my default browser in Windows XP?


Some of my e-mails( using the opera e-mail program) open using IE and some use Opera as my browser. How do I get them all to use Opera as my default operating browser. Thank You - Bob

If running Windows XP, select Start, Set Program Access and Defaults (you can also find this in Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add or Remove Programs) Choose the Custom option if not already selected, then click on the double down arrows to the right that point downward Under the section that reads "Choose a default Web brower:" Select "Opera" You may want to also uncheck "Enable access to this program on the check box next to "Internet Explorer".
