You can do this from the exec node. That issues commands to the operating system. So an exec command of start chrome will do that.

You can use the windows start command to execute anything that Windows understands. So start https://discourse.nodered.org/t/nodes-to-control-pc/11129 will open this thread in a new tab in your default browser.

If you need to get more into the Internals of Windows, there are various other things you can do as well though you would probably want to look at what PowerShell and WMI can do for you. You can use those with the exec node too.
