PLEX opening in Chrome

Hey there,

this might be a stupid question but I can´t find out how to do it...

How can I make my PMS open up in Chrome instead of Explorer when I double click the Plex icon in the right hand corner?

regards!

    Plex Media Server should, as far as I know, respect the operating systems default browser. However I suspect that the reason you are posting this is that Chrome is already the default browser in your Windows installation. Or?

    Is chrome the default browser? You could just make a bookmark in chrome for media manager: http://localhost:32400/manage

    Great to hear that it was an easy solution. There has been so many hairy problems with this initial release of Laika, so I am quite relieved ;)
