    I have Opera as my default borwser. After a hard reset the hyperlinks use Opera instead of IE. But the Google search on my today screen uses IE buy default and I don't know how to get it to use Opera. I don't have a registry editor and frankly don't know how to use one.

    Anyone have an easy fix short of messing with a registry setting?

    Edited to add I'll try a reg hack if anyone knows one.

    No solutions??

    I installed the advanced configuration utility and still can't figure this out. I'm sure it's simple and the solution is right under my nose. Very frustrating!!!

    Set Opera as your default browser should do the trick

    I have it set as defautl, and soft reseted. It works for everything but the Google Search on my Today screen. I have also removed it and added it. It stil brings up IE not Opera.

    It does this for me too. What I do is have Google's mobile page as my home page in Opera so if I start Opera (I have remapped a softkey for that) then I have a Google search field and it's in Opera.

    I have the soft key enabled too. It would be nice to fix the search on the Today screen though.

    Had a look in the registry, and it points to a DLL, so I suspect that you'd have to modify that before it will work . That, or write your own custom one and replace it. For reference, they Registry Key is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Today\Items\"Web Search", and the DLL is \Windows\WebSearchPlugin.dll

    Wow, could they have made it more of a pain?
