Sharepoint - Set browser for app development tests

May 18, 2015

I am working on a new Sharepoint app development and I need to often deploy and test it. My default browser is Google Chrome and each time a launch my app test, it’s opened in Chrome. The problem is that I want to test it in IE instead of Chrome because it’s the recommanded browser it the target organisation where I will deploy the application. I was really happy to discover that this is really simple to configure in Visual Studio, through the solution properties. I can switch from available browser in Properties > Start Action : sp-app-browser Now, I didn’t had to change my default browser and test in the target browser without copying and pasting each time I launch my app!!  {:}
