Hi,
Right-click the Internet Shortcut> Properties, modify the Target to include
the path to the browser's exe file.
Example:
A target of http://www.yahoo.com
becomes
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" www.yahoo.com
or
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" www.yahoo.com
Note a space between EXE" and ww

Hope this helps,
