    I have exported my Test Studio project to Visual Studio and want to debug coded steps. I have my default browser set to Chrome, my project is set to use Chrome, I created a .testsettings file that is set to Chrome and I have set the default Visual Studio browser to Chrome.

    When I run the test from the VS plug-in it will launch Chrome but if I launch a test from VS Test Explorer it will launch Internet Explorer. Is there a way to change this or am I stuck with IE?

    I was able to resolve this by selecting the test in Test Studio, going into Test Details, clicking on All Test Properties, and setting the BrowserType to Chrome. Seems odd that NotSet would default to IE when preference is set to Chrome everywhere else.

    Hello Roddy,

    Once you added in VS a settings file it is necessary to select it from Test -> Test Settings -> Select Test Settings File (steps 11 - 14 in this article). If not selected this way it will not be used for the test execution.

    I hope this clarification helps.
