MSN Hotmail not using default browser

  marbleblue 08:55 01 Oct 06

I recently downloaded & installed Slimbrowser onto my system. During the installation proccess, I was asked if I would like to make it my default browser, to which I answered yes. however when I log in to my MSN account and click the Hotmail icon on the main window, it still opens my hotmail in IE. Is there any way to make it open with Slimbrowser instead?

Remove the homepage from IE which could be set to MSN.

Next find the MSN exe file, right click it and select open with...Slimbrowser. You will have to seach for the browser exe file

In retrospect, I don't think my description was terribly clear. By 'logging in to my MSN account' I meant opening Windows Live Messenger and signing into that. Also, by 'click the Hotmail icon' I meant clicking the Hotmail button on the logged-in Windows Live Messenger window.

Also, I've run the search tool and it can't find msn.exe

Hope this clears things up

msn.exe if actually called dw.exe and can be found in the programs folder under MSN Messenger. If it does not work post back... I will be offline for a while due to upgrading.
