Web links outside of internet explorer

Jun 03, 2015

I am having an issue with Internet Explorer. 

I have a few video links that link to videos on my server.

However when I click on the link in the published Storyline file it opens the video in Internet Explorer which is not great and lags the video.

My default browser is Google Chrome.

Is there a way to make these links open in Chrome?

Hi Mitch,

Are you publishing for CD? If so, 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.

Hello David and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

Thanks for reaching out.

You mention that you're publishing to LMS. If you're opening this course in Chrome, your links should then open in Chrome, even if in a new tab.

It sounds like that is not what you are experiencing?

Are you viewing the published course from the LMS or viewing locally, which may launch those links in IE due to the requirements Ashley shared above.
