  1. Curious Browser app discrepancies after upgrading to Win10


    After doing an in-place upgrade from Win7 to Win10, I'm seeing some curious discrepancies within the Win10 Settings\Apps areas:

    Win10's Settings\Apps & features, lists just two browsers:
    - one Mozilla Firefox app.
    - one Microsoft Edge app.
    And Win10's Settings\Default Apps, correctly lists Firefox as my default web browser.

    However,
    Win10's Settings\Default Apps\Set defaults by app, shows:
    - one Microsoft Edge icon (that's ok)
    - two Firefox icons. (Why are there two Firefox icons?)
    - one Internet Explorer icon. (Why do I see an Internet Explorer icon, if Internet Explorer does not show up as an installed app? When I upgraded, didn't Microsoft Edge replace Internet Explorer?)

    Many thanks in advance,

    Winver 1903, Build 18362.418
    Firefox 70.0.1 (64-bit)

    Revo Uninstaller List Differs from Win10 Progs and Features List


    I'm running Win10 Pro 64bit and Revo Uninstaller Pro v3.1.5. There is a huge discrepancy in the installed programs lists provided by Revo Uninstaller and the Win10 Programs and Features control panel. They both say there are 83 installs (that's good). But Revo Uninstaller claims that 15 programs were installed a few days ago on 2/29/2016. The correct number is 3 which is what Win10 says. Today I uninstalled Revo Uninstaller (using Revo Uninstaller to do it) and then reinstalled it. No help.

    I guess it might be OK to ignore this discrepancy but I find it surprising.

    Suggestions?

    Hi Llyan,

    If you're having issues with setting a default browser, it can be due to some changes in the configuration settings. To assist you with your concern, we recommend that you set your preferred browser as the default by following the steps listed below:

    • Type Settings in the Search bar and press
      Enter
      .
    • Choose System then click on Default apps.
    • Scroll down, and click Set defaults by app option.
    • Click on your preferred browser, then click Choose defaults for this program.
    • Click Select all, then Save.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the suggested steps.

    I show same thing. You may have discovered a "leap day" bug in the Revo app. I wouldn't worry about it, honestly. It's how it calculates the term "Recently". If you use CCleaner and look at tools/uninstall it list progs. Sort descending date...you get a another answer.
