Chrome No Longer Opens In Expression Web

Hi,

I understand this is a really old tool. Sigh. But I'm just trying to maintain an old site developed with EW4.

I used to be able to do File > Preview In Browser > Chrome. This has stopped working. I now get "Can't start web browser Chrome. ..." If I edit the browser list, I can't modify or remove it. I tried creating a new browser, Chrome with a different name. The path and executable are correct, but same message.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks,

d.

I just had a thought. I reported a Win10 bug with hyperlinks in Word where all hyperlinks except jpgs work fine. I believe this is an OS issue, not a Word issue because the symptoms indicate it is a file type/browser problem.

I suspect this might have something to do with Microsoft updates always trying to convert the default browser to a Microsoft browser. Though I always say no, they may have done some change anyway.

And the thought is whatever broke hyperlinks in Word is also affecting how browsers are used in Expression Web.
