Online "Help" to open in Safari not Explorer - Adobe Photoshop Elements

How do I set Elements 2.0's online "Help" to open in Safari rather than Explorer? GoLive did it automatically. I have already set Safari as my default browser yet Element's Help still opens in Explorer. Thanks Chris Mac osx 10.2.8...

    Hi Christopher,

    You have to sneak up on it. In Finder, drill down to the /Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 2/Help folder and do a 'Get Info' on one of the HTML files there.
    In the Info panel select Safari to "Open With" and then hit the "Change All" button. This will make Safari the default app for all of the HTML files on your system, including PSE2's Help.

    That's cool Kyle -thanks so much. I've just switched to MozillaFirebird from IE (until I upgrade to 10.3 from 10.1.5 safari won't talk to me) - I was amazed just how much my slow internet was a function of the slow browser rather than the dial-up. It was embarassing seeing my husbands laptop with a fifty per cent slower processor and a quarter of the RAM opening files next to my machine at threee times the speed! - but he does use OS9. I'm hoping 10.3 will speed things up further.

    Ha, We've been saying it couldn't be done and the solution was so simple. Nice tip Kyle.

    Susan,

    I think you'll like Panther/Safari. I just updated from 10.1.5 on my iMac and it was worth the upgrade.
