    Hi,

    Got my Powerbook yesterday. In Mail, when I would click on a link to the web, I would access the web via Safari.
    Installed Microsoft Office this am and now the links access via Explorer. Is there a way to set Safari as the default??

    Thanks,

    Frank

    Yes There Is!

    Go to System preferences, and click the Internet pane. Click on the Web tab, and select Safari as your default browser. Happy browsing!

    Happy browsing... until you restart your computer.

    Not sure if this happens to everybody, but for me, every time I restart my computer IE resets itself as the default browser. I have to reset it to Safari after each restart. (Entourage does the same thing, making itself the default mail program.)

    Also, every time I start IE (I need it for some pages), it asks me if I want to set it to be my default browser--no matter how many times I check "don't ask me again".

    I found it. First I found the "reset Safari"<hee-hee> didn't want to pick that one, but found it under preferences.
