    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:
