Chrome won't load locally stored HTML files

Recommended Posts

A lot of the programs I have running on my computer came with HTML help files. When the I use the in-program links to open them Chrome just spits out the following error:

This browser does not display help installed on your local machine. Please use another browser to view the help. For more information, see Chromium issue 47416 (
).

This is super frustrating because I don't know how to set it up so local files will use IE or FF instead, while still keeping Chrome as my primary browser. I would prefer to just use Chrome for everything though. Does anyone have a fix for this?

[This is running Chrome version 25.0.1364.172 m]

      I like launching Google Docs as a pinned application, like you showed us how to do in this tutorial:
      http://www.groovypost.com/howto/how-to/pin-websites-chrome/
      But I want it to show my starred docs first, not just my HOME folder. There's no settings in Google Docs for that, is there? I looked but can't find one.

      I'm on Windows 7 and I'd like to know how can I change the number of programs the start menu shows. I just want to pin my favorite apps to the start menu and not show any recently opened or most opened apps. That's one thing that really pisses me off...

      Hi, I know I could probably google this answer but I'm lazy.
      So, I've got a Google Chrome web page pinned to my task bar, and when you launch it, it clears out all the "junk." But then I zoomed out using CTRL mouse wheel and I can't figure out what is 100% zoom (i.e. default). Anyway to temporarily show the settings menu in a pinned Chrome app?

      Hello! I recently tried to follow the instructions in the article 'how to disable startup programs in windows...'. The process seemed to work until after the re-start when I got a serious looking message that basically told me to reinstate everything to a previous date point to avoid damaging the computer. Well I did that because I'm insecure about the inner mysteries of the computer, but would still like to get rid of automatic start-up of my photo programs and other things. So what is really necessary in the start-up and how do I bypass the rather demanding order to re-instate everything after I've unticked the things I think are not needed? Thank you all in advance for your help. My operating system is Windows XP.

      Most of the time when you install an application, the application likes to automatically start when Windows boots. It does this by adding itself to a registry key.
      Here are a few of the startup registry keys:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesHKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunHKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
      Usually the program can be found in one of those keys, but sometimes instead it will add itself to the startup folders:
      %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup%C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup%
      I've tried locking down these locations by adjusting who can edit these, but that makes it really hard to add applications to them that you actually DO want running at Startup. Does anyone have an easier way of blocking applications from adding themselves to Startup in Windows, while at the same time allowing you to add the ones that you like to startup.

      Perhaps if we could just block installers from adding to startup that would be best.
