Open link/export excel file with a specific browser

I am having an issue where when exporting an excel document, it is opening with the chrome browser to download (instead of the default browser). I was wondering if anyone has found a way to open links/export but by using a specific browser.

I have tried the attach browser activity but it still opens with chrome.

It is export from a java application and not a website.

Do you mean the excel document is downloaded from java application?.
Did you change the browser name field in the property of the activity?.

Yes, so the automation is interacting with a java application where it exports out a report. There is no browser activity in the automation at all. First time a browser comes into play is when the automation clicks export and it downloads the file.

Is this happening at all times and did you try to download it manually?
Is the browser open when you try to download the report manually?
