I created an IE webpage shortcut on my desktop but when I click to open it, it opens with Firefox. Firefox is my default browser, I know this could be the reason.

Is there a way to make it to open with the original browser (Internet Explorer) - while retaining Firefox as my default browser?

Change the shortcut to IE's exe file and the website for whatever

I don't quite understand how to do it. Can you elaborate a little further?

Create a new shortcut and enter something like the following as the target.

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://www.google.co.nz
