    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.
