  1. Can't set Google Chrome as default browser


    Like the title says, I can't set Chrome as my browser. When I go to default apps, Chrome doesn't appear as an option under the browser category. It's also not in the Microsoft app store. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it. Still nothing. I've seen threads on this issue with solutions, but as those threads are usually from 3-5 years ago, the solutions no longer work.

    :)

  2. Can`t set a default browser in Windows 10

    Hello, I`ve been having an issue with setting my default internet browser in Windows 10 for about a month now.

    When Windows starts, it asks me to select a default browser, I select Google Chrome from the list and it goes away.

    Nothing happens and under default programs there is still no default browser listed.

    Then, when I open my browser I am prompted by Chrome to make it my default.

    The same Windows prompt appears again and I select Chrome from the list.

    However, even after these steps every time I click on a link, I am asked to select a default browser.

    Is there anyway to fix this issue?
