    Hi there,

    Whenever I highlight a URL, right-click and try to "Open URL" it seems to bring up System Preferences instead of going to the desired URL. Does anyone know why this happens and how to fix it??

    Thanks.
    Mike

    Drag a URL off onto the Desktop then select it and hit command-i to bring up the get info screen. Does it say to open URL with Safari like in my screenshot?

    Thanks for that, it was set to system preferences for some reason (?) so changed it and all is good now, cheers :)
