If you are a Windows 10 user, there are two browsers in this operating system namely Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Microsoft Edge is a new browser that became the default browser to replace Microsoft's old browser, Microsoft Internet Explorer. Although Microsoft Edge is better than Microsoft Internet Explorer, for now, the feature is still limited, while Microsoft Internet Explorer itself has experienced failure and abandoned by its users.
Due to the limited features that are available in the Microsoft Edge, many Windows 10 users then install other browsers from the third-party provider such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera. Each browser has its own advantages and disadvantages such as a browser with support for multiple extensions, a browser with better performance, or a browser with more features. This is also a reason why a computer has more than one browser.
If your Windows 10 computer has more than one browser installed, one browser will be the default browser. When you click on a link in an email or perform an action that triggers a browser running, then Windows 10 will run this default browser. In Windows 10, If you never change the Windows settings for the default apps, your default browser is Microsoft Edge.
Everyone has their favorite browser or the most frequently used browser. You can turn your favorite browser into the default browser. There are several ways to change the default browser in Windows 10, for example, through Windows Settings or through the settings that exist in each browser setting. Here are the steps to change the default browser in Windows 10 using Windows Settings:
Access the WinX menu by right-clicking the Windows button located in the lower-left corner of the screen (1) and then choose Settings (2).
In the Windows Settings window that appears, click Apps (Uninstall, default, optional features).
In the Settings - Apps window that appears, make sure you have clicked the Default apps link (1), next click the default browser that is currently active (2), and then select the browser that you want as the new default browser (3).
