Browser Selection in Visual Studio 2019 RRS feed

  • Question

  • My default browser is Chrome but I want to use Firefox Developer as my browser in Visual Studio 2019 Community edition on web pages I am working on. ("View in Browser" command in HTML file editor commands.) The HTML menu has "View in browser (Google Chrome)" and I cannot find any option to change this. Searched Microsoft and found nothing pertinent. Stackoverflow has only two related posts, one discusses toggling between Chrome and IE but couldn"t see how they did it.

    I think I remember being able to choose which of my browsers in VS 2015.

    I expect this to be a head-slapper, but I'm stuck. TIA!
