You need to clarify------what  "links" are you referring to?

The link can come in any email I receive. The link will open a browser (whatever one the email system uses as a default). I have changed some applications (in Preferences) to open Chrome, Bing, or Firefox. Just haven't been able to change my Comcast email.

You're still not being very clear.  Are you saying that when you click on a link in your Comcast email you want it to open in Google Chrome instead of in Safari?

 

There isn't a way in webmail to set a specific browser to open links in email.  If you're using Safari to read your webmail, any link you click on will open in Safari, presumably because it's your default browser.  The only way around that is if you make Chrome your default browser for opening links, but you could still be using Safari - it would just no longer be your default browser for anything else; any time you click on a link on a webpage Chrome would open up.

 

Is there a reason you want links to open in Chrome and not Safari?

 

Or......

 

Are you asking how to set Google as your default search engine in Safari?
