How to Change the Default Browser in Windows 10



Microsoft has introduced a new integrated browser with the launch of Windows 10: Microsoft Edge. It's supposed to be light and fast, but many PC owners may not want an integrated browser forced into their faces. Choice is the key to happiness. We'll show you how to change the default browser in Windows 10.

When you install a new browser, you are usually prompted to set it as the default. This is not ideal in the initial trial-and-error mode in which you want to test a browser before making a lifetime commitment. In this guide, you will learn how to manually set the default browser through the preferences and in five popular web browsers.

This guide is based on Windows 1

0, version 1809 (October 2018 update).
