How To Change Microsoft Edge As Default Browser On Windows 10

After upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10, there has been some changes that I’m not used to yet and I think that there are still new stuff that I’m not aware to.

One of Windows 10 features is Microsoft Edge. Yes it’s pretty fast than the old Internet Explorer but I’m more used to Google Chrome. The problem is that by default settings, links are opened through Edge, like for example a link sent through Skype.

To Change the settings, you can do these steps.

  1. Go to Start > Settings > System > Default Apps > Then choose the browser you prefer.

I think there are instances that some browsers are not shown in the menu of default browsers. Like for example Google Chrome. I have seen many people having issue of making it as their default browser. It only proves that Windows 10 has still some bugs and hopefully Microsoft will work on it.
