When I click a link that would open a new webpage, it opens up in IE.

I personally use Chrome. Can I change this setting anywhere? I know Win 8 is not 7, but they seem somewhat similar.

Thank you as always!

Have you made Chrome the default browser?

Since Chrome is NOT designed for Windows 8, it may not have the right setting built in to really make it the default.

Are there any settings within Windows Options that make it (Chrome) the default browser?

I have changed the default Browser, several times, through the Control Panel - default tprograms - Set your default
No problems through that route (for FireFox/IE)

Windows 8 is BETA and will not be released as production for another year.
