    how does one make Chrome the default browser


    I have set Chrome to default browser and all seems to be well apart from one or even to burps. In certain emails, I click on an attachment and it will still open up Microsoft Edge.
    The question for today is ... how does one stop an attachment file stubbornly opening up Edge instead of Chrome? Do please type very slowly in order for me to understand. Thank you!

    :)

    Cannot change DEFAULT browser in Windows 10

    How does one change the DEFAULT browser in Windows 10? I would like to change it to IE11. It has been set to Chrome.

    Here are the steps I've tried:

    1. Go into Settings

    2. Choose Default apps

    3. Select Web Browser

    4. Select IE

    5. Nothing happens! It still shows that it is set to Chrome.

    6. Reboot

    7. Default browser is still set to Chrome. However, when going through the process again, under Choose Default Apps | Web browser, instead of Chrome showing it shows a grey box with a plus sign in it.

      .

    • Click on System > Default Apps.

    Thanks for the replies. I've been in here & set Chrome as default when I first upgraded. If I hit a link in Outlook, it takes me right to Chrome. But in one particular email, there is a PDF file and clicking on that takes me over to Edge.
    It seems this particular type of File sets something off and opens up Edge. Is there a way to overcome this?

  7. Add the PDF Extension to Chrome.

    how does one make Chrome the default browser

    Added the PDF viewer extension. This is still not fixing the problem. When I right click on that particular file in this email, it still says "This file cannot be previewed because there is no previewer installed for it." When I open it, it still takes me to Edge.

    Any other suggestions?

  9. 1 - Download a PDF file to your desk top. Right click it and choose Properties...
    2 - See where it says Opens with: Microsoft Edge? Click Change...
    3 - Click More Apps
    4 - Click Chrome
    5 - Click 'Always use this app to open .PDF files.'
    6 - Click OK

    This is the trick no doubt but I'm trying to download a pdf file that doesn't automatically open in Chrome. This will be another exciting chore no doubt. Thank you for the help.

    Got it. Simply saved the PDF and then right clicked on it and chose Chrome to open it. It works 101% now. Thank you again for the help!

    Hi all, firsty here <-- *Smile

    However, this trick does not work anymore, did all as usual, however, the PDF icon remains with an Edge icon and unable to select anything else than Edge as the default browser, even after hitting the reset button.

    Please help, I most likely have the least amount of brain here . . . need help. Had to reset and lost most every settings.*Sick
