OK, I thought this was weird. My default browser is Safari Tech Preview. I saved a webpage to my desktop from this browser. But when I clicked on it on my desktop it opened up in regular Safari! How do I get it to open up in Safari tech preview? That shouldn't have happened, right? Under system prefs Safari Tech Preview is definitely the default browser.


MacBook Pro - Catalina 10.15.7
Safari Tech Prev 14.2
Safari 14.1.1
Firefox 91,0.2
Music 1.0.6.10
iPhone 7 Version 14.1

Hi, Rita,

If you do a Get Info on your d/l it will probably show Safari as default "Open with," and if so, just change it to STP, and you'll probably want to click on "Change All...."

That worked!! I never would have thought of that as I thought when I used a certain browser as a default everything would respond to that. Thanks.
