    Hi
    My default browser is Firefox
    The web site Furkot ( trip planner map program) seems to work better using Chrome
    I have a shortcut icon that opens Furkot which also opens Firefox since its the default
    >>>>>https://trips.furkot.com/ui<<<<<is in the properties box of the short cut icon (sorry, I don't see any quote brackets)
    Is there a way to have the url open in Chrome without going in Firefox
    What I do now is click on the Chrome icon then chick on their shortcut icon
    I'm using Windows 10 64-bit with Microsoft Office 365

    1. Right-click a blank area of the desktop and select “New” > “Shortcut“.

    2. For the location, type the path to the browser you wish to use followed by the URL you wish to open. For example:
    3. Provide the name for the shortcut. You will probably want to use the name of the website in most cases.

    4. Select “Next“.

    5. Select “Finish“.
