  1. Don't want Edge as my default browser


    Why does Microsoft keep asking me to make "Edge" the default browser & if I want to try the latest version? Despite using another browser as my default & turning off the setting for it to continue asking me if I'd like to try it, I'm still asked every time I open Microsoft.

    :)

    Don't want Edge as my default browser

    Default Browser Keeps Changing to Edge

    About a week ago, when I start my computer (from being completely shutdown) - open Outlook email and click on any link in an email, it opens in Edge. Firefox has always been my default browser. If I check my settings, it will show Edge as my default and
    I never changed it to that. If I open Firefox before clicking on any links in email, then it asks me if I'd like t make it my default and that will work only for that particular session.

    Every time the computer is shut down and restarted, Edge takes over again.

    I followed all of the steps as described by Erika above, except for the first suggestion "Set your preferred default browser to skip
    Choose default apps by file type." As I mentioned above, I do not understand what this sentence is saying.

    I just check the for windows updates, and everything is up-to-date, no updates are pending.

    I just want my default browser to stay FireFox after shutdown/restart and not have to go through half a dozen steps every time I want to start using my computer.

    I would start another thread, but my problem is the exact same problem as the original poster.
