Hi,

It's not the same with every program. Different programs have different registry settings. Also, this cannot be done without a third-party utility like:

Set the default browser for your user profile:

Set the default email client on a per-user basis
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/defaultmail.htm

Per User Display Settings:
