Opera as default browser

When opening the "Solid Edge components catalog" from the solid edge startup screen, SE opens IE.

I have Opera as default browser. Why does Siemens overrule this Windows setting??

How can I make SE use the browser of my choise?

Solid Edge is not designed to use the workstation default browser setting. Solid Edge is explicitly coded to use Internet Explorer. Therefore there is currently no easy or supported way to configure Solid Edge to use any browser other than Internet Explorer.

 

FYI, there are various 3rd party hacks available on the web for overriding opening Internet Explorer with a different browser but these would all be unsupported.
