    Let's say that Cyberfox is the default web browser and is default for opening HTML, HTM, and similar files. How can I make a shortcut for one of the IE bookmarks that would launch IE instead of Cyberfox in that particular instance? I realize its probably easier to just launch IE and go to that bookmarked site, but I don't need this for myself...

    Just make a link containing both the program and the file to open

    Like "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" foo.html, then click on it when you need it.
