    Google Chrome keeps becoming Default Browser when computer restarts


    Every time I restart my computer, Google Chrome is defaulted, and not Firefox. I always set Firefox as the default. Is there a condition that changes this all the time?

  2. Brand new Lenovo Windows 10 laptop doesn't have Google Chrome as an optional browser

    I did not see Google Chrome as an option to set as the default browser, so I went to google.com to find Google Chrome to download it, the set up file seem to download fine but when I went to run that file it keeps hanging up and taking a forever time to
    try to put Google Chrome on the computer so that I can select it as a default browser. This is on a brand-new Lenovo windows 10 laptop computer

  3. problem with default web browser

    i am using a windows 10 pc and microsoft edge was the default browser . i have other browsers like google chrome and mozilla firefox but i preferred edge and kept it as my default browser. but suddenly i found that google chrome has become the default
    browser though i never changed it. when i went to settings to change it back to microsoft edge i didn't find it as an option. whereas earlier all the browser used to be showed but now edge is not there. i can still browse to edge by opening it but i want to
    keep that as my default browser. its quite worrisome for me. any help will be highly appreciated.

    Are you setting Firefox as default through Firefox or through windows default programs?

    I have tried both, using Windows Default Programs, as well as Firefox options, it doesn't stick.

    2 reason I wont use Google, Chrome wants to make changes, other is they been caught stealing peoples information and selling to 3rd parties, and Chrome has a hidden program that accesses your mic. that has been on the news.

    Chrome uses several tasks and services, which might be the cause.
    Just uninstall Chrome and use Chrome Portable version instead.

    They all do it.....some just make it harder to find and turn off all that crap off.

    BTW...Do you use a cell phone.....then it's there to. Everyone of those apps you install you have to agree to all of it or none of it. If you say yes....then they have access. If you say no....can't use the app.

    #5 Why is that a 'problem' if you don't have Chrome.
    I use Chrome and have an HP Printer but have never got that message.
    It is in the Chrome web store, if you want it. Not forced upon you.

    The Mic setting is not hidden in Chrome it is in Settings > Content, along with a load of other settings.

    The problem is your settings, either for an HP Printer, or in Windows, or in Chrome.

    Use Revo Uninstaller and do the advanced option.

    Don't expand the google folder.....click the drop down arrows so it's back to the first google folder. Now, select it by right clicking it and then select delete.
