    Unhappy links open in internet explorer nit safari
    i have installed windows xp on my mac ( using vm fusion) as i need to use it occasionally for work.

    the problem that i have is that if i receive a link in a email, when i try to open it it always defaults to open it in internet explorer ( windows) instead of safari, this make it so much slower.....

    also i think i know the answer to this question but here goes, can i export music from a shared itunes file, if so is there a good thread on this site i could look at

    can anyone help on both these issues?

    Texas, where else?

    For the e-mail links - open Safari, Go to Preferences, General and set your 'Default Web Browser'.
    I have 10 choices there, including IE or Opera located in the VM.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
