Open an URL with the default navigator

6 posts in this topic

Hello all :whistle:

I would open an URL with navigator defined by the user as default navigator (IE, Firefox, ...)

I know how launch a navigator with the URL as a parameter but I don't know how retrieve the name of default navigator or how open an URL without navigator specified.

Thank you :)

$File = "http://www.autoitscript.com"
Run(@ComSpec & " /c Start " & FileGetShortName($File), "", @SW_HIDE)

That will run any file/page in default program.
