Apologies if this is a stupid question, but I only use Chrome, access the mgmt console in Chrome, and I removed IE a long time ago.

How do I set the primary browser to Chrome? I can see the webroot filtering icon in Chrome’s toolbar, but I can’t report on the browsing history through webroot console because the primary browser is IE.


Thanks in advance

Hey @hanzaw9 ,

Welcome to the community!

Try the following:

  1. Open chrome
  2. go to preferences/settings
  3. look on lefthand side for “default browser” and click that
  4. Make sure default browser is set to chrome.

Let me know if that works!

Hello @hanzaw9 if you are using Windows 10 you can do it via All Settings>Apps>Default Apps and choose the Browser you want! Look here:

And go here:

Both of those settings appear set to Chrome already.


Please advise.

So are you still having issues you mentioned in your first post? It could be a setting or an extension within Chrome that could be affecting and causing your issue? So double check settings and even disable your other extensions and see which one could be affecting it. I’m not sure if it’s a Webroot issue, if need be you can contact Webroot support!
