set different default browsers on windows 8.1 without going into settings
i have windows 8.1 and love the live tiles feature pinned from internet explorer. (e.g. wpcentral.com, crackberry.com, and imore.com) however, they stop updating when i change the browser default from ie to google chrome. i tried the browsertrayswitch but the last update was from 2009 and it did not change defaults at all. i only need the browser default to change when i switch between desktop and modern ui. even though this is not an everyday function of windows, i find this quite frustrating because of my experience with android devices. they set defaults differently compared to windows. there has to be a solution like the hide taskbar program for a windows layman like myself.
