    Change default browser for "Open results in browser" option in Windows 10


    Hi,

    We had a requirement to block Edge, which was successfully done through GPO, and where we had to set the default browser back to Internet Explorer 11. The issue we have is that if a user search the web using the default Windows 10 search tool, he/she will be presented with the Bing option to "Open results in browser", but instead of defaulting to Internet Explorer 11, the link will attempt to open Edge which is being blocked by the system administrator. Is it possible to change the default browser for that particular link? If not, is it possible to prevent the link from attempting to open Edge?


    Many Thanks

    :)

    How do I change my default browser in Windows 10? Frustrated

    Hi,

    Windows 10 sets Microsoft Edge as the default browser for opening web links.

    You can change the default web browser by following the below steps:

    • From the desktop press Windows flag key +R and type control and click ok.
    • This will open control panel, select default program and select set default program and choose the web browser of your choice.
    Hope this information helps, for further assistance please reply.

    Change default browser for "Open results in browser" option in Windows 10

    Default Browser Keeps Changing to Edge

    There are three other ways to set your default program. In Default apps, navigate the page to find the following:

    • Choose default apps by file type
    • Choose default apps by protocol
    • Set defaults by app

    To manually change your default browser, follow these steps:

    • Set your preferred default browser to skip Choose default apps by file type. Click
      Choose default apps by protocol then look for HTTP and HTTPS. Change them to your preferred browser.
    • After that, click Set defaults by app and wait for the new windows to load. Search your preferred browser and click it. Select
      Set this program as default and press OK.
    • Close all your browsers and check if it still asks you to set your browser.

    Let us know how it goes after doing the troubleshooting steps.
