Expression Web Preview in Browser

Before you can preview your work in browsers other than the default installed on your computer, you must edit the browser list.

File > Preview in Browser > Edit Browser List

Add whichever browsers you have installed on your system  by clicking the Browse button and navigating to the .exe file for that browser. The location is going to depend on your operating system. Select the resolutions you want. Click OK.

On a Windows Vista system:

  • Opera: "C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera.exe"
  • Firefox: "C:\Program Files\Mozille Firefox\firefox.exe"
  • Safari: "C:\Program Files\Safari\safari.exe"
  • Internet Explorer: "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
