TBrowser Opening in my Web Browser Instead of a ROOT File Explorer like Window


When open ROOT by typing root in the Command prompt or terminal, a new tab as a TBrowser in my web browser instead of the ROOT file explorer. Anyone knows how to fix it. I wanted it to open the file explorer. So that i can edit the root files in a new window instead of the browser tab.

ROOT Version: 6.28/04
Platform: Windows 10
Compiler: Clang or MinGW or somethin… not sure

Welcome to the ROOT forum!
This is the new, web based ROOT Browser. If you want the old one, you can either start ROOT with root --web=off, or change these lines:

Browser.Name:                ROOT::Experimental::RWebBrowserImp
Canvas.Name:                TWebCanvas


Browser.Name:                TRootBrowser
Canvas.Name:                TRootCanvas

in your %USERPROFILE%\.rootrc (or in %ROOTSYS%\etc\system.rootrc)

Thanks, opening with the root web off worked
