Storyline does not use default browser to open local files

Hello everyone; I have this issue:  In my PC as well as most of our students there is installed Google Chrome as the default browser; unfortunately whenever Storyline has to open a link or any other file, like PDF or like it will  launch them via Internet Explorer instead of the default browser. 

I publish mainly to CD. 

It´s anoying because we need to Google Chrome for a numer of reasons (Google Apps in the first place) and I really do not like the look and feel of IE. 

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Aroldo,

When you publish content for CD or another offline location (DVD, kiosk, etc.), hyperlinks in the published output will always open in Internet Explorer—even if a different browser is the default browser. This is by design. Content published for CD launches in a form that's based on Internet Explorer, which is why hyperlinks also open in Internet Explorer.
