    Hello Guys

    After a while of using the new Windows 10 I faced a problem .
    when any program in the Desktop wonna redirect me to some internet page the system say " How you wonna open this webset ? " . and in normal case it will give the Choose to use any Browser App I have but i can't see any app to use even Edge
    so i can't go to the page , when i went to the default app page in the setting , i saw that web browser default app is clear and no app is selected i tried to select Edge or Internet browser but nothing changed it still clear , i can't choose any app to be my default browser .
    you must know that i downloaded this apps before this problem , Chrome , torch , and FireFox , i think this problem happened after FireFox the last app downloaded

    sorry for this Long article.

  3. Can't choose Edge as my default browser

    Try this:

    Right-click on your desktop and select New > Text Document. It will create an icon and you will be able to type in the "document's" name (you're not really going to create a text document).

    Name the icon fred.html (or anything, really, as long as .html appears at the end). When you change the name, you will get a warning about changing the extension, verify that you want to change the name (click "Yes").

    Now right-click on the icon you made, a menu will pop up, click on "Open With..." but DO NOT click on Edge. Below the listed browsers click on "Choose Another App."

    In the screen that appears, first check "Always use this app to open .html files," then click on the browser of your choice. If the browser you want does not appear, there is an option to search your hard drive for the directory where it was installed,
    then choose the file that you think is the correct executable. If it doesn't work, try again and choose another -- you will eventually get the right executable if you keep trying and are looking in the right folder.

    "What's an 'executable'?" It's a file that ends in ".exe".

    "What's the right folder?" It's probably in C:\Program Files\ and is the name of your chosen browser.

    "I don't see .exe or .html or .txt at the end of any file names." Google how to show extensions for known file types. It's a easily-accessible setting in Windows Explorer.

    When you're done, you can delete the icon you created. I used to work at Microsoft but they paid for suck, so I got a different job.

    Can't Choose Any Browser To be My Default Browser

    Hi, please see
    Default Apps - Choose in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    E.g. Option 6
    Then Option 7 and check http and https are set to your new default browser.

    I recall some people had a problem with Chrome so if you use that, please search the forum for (e.g.)
    solved set Chrome default browser

    I had this problem but it went away when I reset the default programs and it accepted it then.

    I'd prefer to suggest uninstalling Chrome- if there's some sort of conflict, maybe that as some have had difficulty setting it as default.

    Can't Choose Any Browser To be My Default Browser

    After literally hours of frustration, I stumbled onto this:
    I went from 'Control Panel' to 'Default Programs' to 'Set Program access and computer defaults'. There are 3 radio buttons: Θ Microsoft WindowsΘ Non-MicrosoftΘ CustomI chose 'Non-Microsoft', which allowed me to set Google Chrome as my default web browser.I also un-checked the box across from Internet Explorer which said 'Enable access to this program.'
    Voilá -- Google Chrome shows up as the default in the 'Associate a file type or protocol with a specific program' screen.
