I am a newcomer to BT Sport and find that using a desktop shortcut to start the programme automatically starts Internet Explorer which sits on the bottom taskbar.
This is VERY bad news for me as using Internet Explorer 11 crashes BT Sport to a white screen with the egg timer and the computer completely locked requiring a cold reboot to get going again.
This is using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 11.
However I have found that BT Sport will run using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox BUT only if I use the browser to search for a link to BT Sport and use that link to fire up the programme.This avoids any link to Internet Explorer.
This is a messy way of starting BT Sport and there must be a better way?
If any members of the forum can point me to a way of creating a desktop shortcut to BT Sport without Internet Explorer being involved I would be very grateful
Your desktop shortcut to a webpage (BT Sport) will automatically open your default browser which in your case seems to be IE - So one option is to change your default browser to either Google Chrome or Firefox. However if you do not wish to do that.(eg you want to continue to use IE for all your other browsing) and you only use Google Chrome or Firefox ocasionally eg for BT Sport.
Then you could define the BT Sport page as your home/start page for Google Chrome or Firefox - that way as soon as you select the appropriate browser shortcut it will open at the BT Sport page.
