    • To have another browser used as default, select the Use option and specify the location of the executable file of the required browser. Type the path manually or use the Browse button browseButton, if necessary.

    Note

    IntelliJ IDEA calls the default browser to render external resources as well.

  3. Specify the way to have the browser launched.
    • To enable using a browser from the context menu, select the Active check box in the relevant section.
    • To have IntelliJ IDEA launch a browser using the default system command, select the Default check box in the relevant section.
