Is there a way to change the browser Visual Studio launches for a source control plug-in?

I have two different MSDN accounts and I need to use one for our source control stuff and another for other projects.

I would like to keep my default browser (chrome) semi-permanently logged in to the second account, but if a web browser is opened through visual studio I would like it to open in Edge so that I can keep my first account as the log-in details for that.

As an example: search for a shelveset you've created in Visual Studio. Double-click on it. Click the down arrow next to "Actions" and there will be an option to "Open in Browser". I want that (and anything else in VSthat would open in a browser) to open Edge instead of Chrome.

I'm using Visual Studio 2019.

Hi,DougRank,

After my research, we cannot select the browser we want for "Open in Browser" in visual studio. We suggest you submit it as a suggestion here: https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/report?space=8&entry=suggestion

Best Regards,
Dylan
