I'm creating a hyperlink from a word/pdf document to a pdf document on the intranet. My PC insists on opening this url using Internet Explorer, but I (and others who will be accessing the document) am not configured to use IE as Netscape is the company standard, so the hyperlink doesn't work properly. How can I change my configuration so my PC will use Netscape not IE for these hyperlinks (and thus explain to others how to change their configuration when they have the same trouble?). Operating system is Window NT. If this is a Windows NT issue, is there a good resource for tracking down this info?
