There used to be some browser plugins/extensions where you could right click and open in an IE instance. But I believe many fell out of favor over the years.
What is nice about those extensions is that it would work generically on any web links, and required no modifications.
Basically what the above article describes is how you can add a new Windows registry setting to the machines of your users. This registry setting defines a new protocol handler. Essentially, if you name it something like "iehttp", then whenever your machine sees a link clicked that starts with "iehttp://" instead of "http://", then it launches IE to open the link instead of the current browser. I am not sure if this can be done for non-Windows machines.
