  1. Can't change default browser to Google Chrome


    Hi


    I use windows 10 version 1803

    When I try changing the default browser in the settings, there's only 2 I can choose, Edge and Internet Explorer. I would like to use Google Chrome but it doesn't show up. The program is installed in my computer, I'm even using it right now but for some reason, I can't make it default.


    I tried using the control panel but when I click "set your default program" it brings me back to settings.


    I don't know what to do, please help!

    :)

    Windows 10 not allowing to change default browser to google chrome


    I recently re-installed windows 10. Have tried every way to change default browser from Edge to Chrome, to no avail. Even changed the default by file type, HTML, Htm, to open with google chrome. Under Apps & Features, google is listed as my browser, but in Default apps-Web browser-choose default, I can click on google chrome till the cows come home and no sale. Very frustrated, have never like Edge. What is my next move? Even Apps by protocol has google chrome listed but it still won't respond.
