I would like to ask if there is a script that will open a specific browser when clicking the button field.
My workplace has web portal sites that only work with Internet Explorer, but I don’t want my team to have it as their default browser.
I have set up the button to run script, but would appreciate some assistance with the code.

It seems that you can do this sort of thing with Microsoft Edge like this:

But this doesn’t work with IE I’m afraid.

The scripting app can’t touch the DOM, so OS-level interactions are out of the question. Forcing a specific browser would fall into that category. An app/block could easily do this, though, but going from learning about the DOM to putting together a React app might be a bit of a steep step.
