    Why on Gods Earth when asked by Windows 10 to set a default and if it is not what Microsoft wants yopu to enter, they just choose to ignore you. Very BAD user experience and some programmer out there needs to be fired ASAP.

  15. Couldn't figure it out but I ended up trying to select Microsoft Edge first which worked, then switched to Google Chrome which now it asked me "Are you sure?" which I obviously am so I pressed "switch anyway" and BANG, Google Chrome is now default browser.

    Enjoy,
