I use Explorer and Netscape. I have Windows 2000. When I try to get online clipart for my Office applications, it wants to open Netscape. Is there a way to change my default browser so that Office will use Explorer instead of Netscape?

In Internet Explorer go to Tools>>Internet Options>>Programs. Put a checkmark next to "Internet Explorer should check to see if it is the default web browser".
Next time you start IE, you should get an alert asking you if you want to change your default browser.

This is easy if you want to change from Netscape to IE (as stated by brendaandonhu above). The reverse is slightly more difficult. If you are using Windows XP, you can use the option "Set Program Access and Defaults". Otherwise, you can also use setbrowser freeware programme at http://www.voodoofiles.com/5178
