HI I have an iMac with VMWare Fusion 4 and Windows 7 also installed on it.

My problem is that when I click on any link from emails mac mail (not hotmail) it boots up the VMWare/Windows and opens them in Windows Internet Explorer. How can I set it to default to Safari on the Mac side please?

Thanks

The default browser is set in Safari - Preferences. I forget which tab and not at a Mac right now.

General. ;)

I don't use Fusion but it seems that Fusion also has a setting in their preferences. You might want to take a look there as well.
