Setting the default browser in Visual Studio 2010 in an MVC Application



To set the default browser used for debugging in an ASP.Net web application you need to bring up the “Browse With…” option on an aspx web page.  In a default MVC application you won’t have this option.

To do this temporarily add a “default.aspx” form to the root of your project, then the “Browse With…” context menu option will appear.  Choose your favourite browser, then remove the “default.aspx”.
