View Thread: Setting IE9 32-bit as default browser (as opposed to IE9 64-bit)
  • User profile image


    When I drag a URL to the desktop, the shortcut always brings up the 32-bit version. I checked this on both a Windows 7 Pro machine and a Windows 7 Ultimate machine.

    I checked the Internet Options ' Programs dialog, and it says "Internet Explorer (64-bit) cannot be the default browser". 

    The 64-bit version shouldn't even be allowed to be the default.

    What I would do is set a different browser (e.g. Chrome or FireFox) as default, and then set IE back as the default to see if that fixes the problem.
